Paulsen is an award-winning watercolorist from Knoxville, TN, whose works have been described as expressive,
brave and Hey, lady, whats this supposed
After escaping a successful career in professional advertising,
she exalted in focusing entirelly on watercolor as a fine arts painter and also as an illustrator.. Kit
is a member of the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts and the Pittsburgh Soociety of Illustrators.
She takes pleasure in being active in the arts community and in
the fact that her works are displayed in many
businesses, galleries and homes.
A Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Tennessee with
a double major in both design and painting, Kit and her husband Scott just moved from a farm
in Pennsylvanias Laurel Highlands to Fredericksburg, VA, so her foocus on all things country is changing to all things beach. Fredericksburg is a nice mix of subject matter, both historic and coastal, and there is such joy in exploring!
I love the process of putting down what I see, of finding
the poetry of place, says Kit. My favorite creations
are those which tell a story, making the viewer want to study them
and enjoy his/her own interpretation.
You can reach Kit with any questions about her work or just to tell her a dirty joke through the comments section of this website.

friend and famous watercolor painter, Ron Thurston. See more of
