Visual artist, Connie Kottmann, experiments with color and texture in the digital medium.  “I love creating layers and letting the color show through, or ‘dragging’ colors into each other,” Connie says.  “The digital medium allows for lots of experimentation. I also enjoy creating pop art inspired patterns.”

I've been making art all of my life. I grew up on Coney Island, in Brooklyn New York in the 1960s and 70s. It was a unique setting, one which I took for granted during those years. (Doesn't everyone have a view of a roller coaster and the ocean from their living room window?) It wasn't until many years later that I realized how much that colorful and unusual environment had an impact on me as a young artist. I studied design and art history in college. Many years later I went back to school to earn my M.S. in Communication, landing me in my current job in higher education marketing communication. My husband and I have three children, and now that they are grown, I am spending more time making and promoting my art. A passion of mine is helping adults, especially those over 50, connect to their creativity to live a fuller life.
