Loretta Kaltenhauser is an award winning, contemporary artist who began her artistic journey later in life. Self taught, Kaltenhauser paints works that are abstract or have landscape elements to them, incorporating a bold mix of styles from sleek and contemporary to weathered and organic.
By skillfully layering, manipulating and subtracting acrylic paint on canvas using various brushes, palette knives and scrapers, her pieces have alluring textures and captivating imagery.
Her true inspiration comes from within her heart and soul through conscious and subconscious impressions, visions and dreams.
Her goal is not to document subjects or to make statements, but to make an emotional connection with the viewer allowing them to explore their spirit as well.
