|Kathy Mason Lerner
Kathy Mason Lerner's work emerges through many layers of oil on canvas, in a rich spectrum of vibrant and pulsating color. Beginning as plein-air studies that are then finished in the studio the paintings principle origins are rooted in the natural world.

She also studied under former Harvard Fog Art Museum instructor, Barbara Pierce. In the early 1990's she was awarded a Diebenkorn scholarship at the Santa Fe Institute of Arts, where she became a master at capturing light and layering colors under the tutelage of the acclaimed American artist, Wolf Kahn.
