About kohlene hendrickson
Kohlene Hendrickson is a native Californian, but moved to Switzerland in 2000 where she has found "home" in the enchanted village of Romainmôtier. She studied Fine Arts at the Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles. She worked for 12 years as an illustrator and art director, then returned to fine arts by studying fresco with Frederico Vigil and continued her study of fresco in Italy. Kohlene has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the USA and in Europe ( France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria). Her artworks have been on the highly successful TV series Will & Grace where her male nude drawings were featured.

Kohlene was recently awarded INTERNATIONAL ARTIST OF THE YEAR-female, by ART COMES ALIVE 2019. She is a grant recipient awarded by the NEW YORK COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS, the "Inaugural Mario Venturini Artist Residency" at HAC FLX (2015). She was awarded the "Grand Prix Europeo Albrecht Dürer" by the Accademia Gentilizia Il Marzocco of Florence for her painting AWAKENING in 2012. She was a finalist in the BoldBrush awards for her painting DOUBLE VISION 2009, top 15% by jurists in May 2108 for her painting CHESS.

"My attraction to ancient painting techniques is the quality of their craftsmanship and the pure essence of the natural materials. Beeswax, resin, lime, sand, pigments, wood and water.

My perception of creativity changed radically when I had the realization that only when you hold nothing fixed can true creativity enter. I began pouring the paint rather than applying it with a paintbrush. In this process I am dancing between the hazard of the flowing paint and the edge of control. As in life, letting the flow of the universe enter and be directed with life's experience to temper the current."
