Kathleen Piccione Artist
Kathleen Piccione: (1964- ) Born in Beloit Wisconsin, Kathleen’s early love of realism was influenced by such artists as James Bama and John Waterhouse . Mostly self- taught from an early age, she became proficient in black and white mediums preferring graphite, charcoal, and ink over paint. She gradually moved into color mediums working in color pencil then finally delving into acrylics and oils. As a portrait artist in her 20’s she did extensive commissioned work for clients focusing on people, pets, and equine art.
In 2000 Kathleen started her own faux finishing and mural business and eventually relocated to Las Vegas, NV. Interior Design became a natural transition while working on residential and commercial projects. Clients often times had her in their home or businesses for 6 months to a year doing a wide variety of jobs from original artwork to entire floor layouts and design themes. She also branched out into iron furniture design, plasma cutting, and iron finishes. Her ability to create believable trompe’loi landed her work in several million dollar homes and parade homes and her large scale murals are in various businesses across the U.S.
