Denise Hawkins

Denise Hawkins is a life-long Nashville resident who recently took advantage of early retirement (after a 30+ year career in the investment management business) to paint full-time.

“I am drawn to quiet places, whether it is a riverbank, an open field or a place setting for an upcoming meal to be shared. Objects with age and history speak to me and I seek to capture their essence and share a moment of time gone by with viewers. I paint in oils with a limited palette. I enjoy the buttery texture of oils, the richness of color and their permanence. Limiting my pallet helps me explore the many ways to create colors and achieve harmony.”
