Denise Dumont received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design in New York City. She studied further at the School of Visual Arts and frequented the studios of the Art Students League. Her work has been largely influenced by Edward Hopper, Edouard Vuillard and Fairfield Porter.
"My favorite scenes are usually found in the light of early morning or late afternoon when the shadows are deep and dramatic," says Dumont. She often paints outdoors in the plein air tradition and works on larger canvases in her studio.
Born in New York, Dumont spent her childhood on Long Island and adult years in New York City where she lived until 2004. Having then spent several years in the Hudson River Valley and Baltimore, Maryland, she is now settled in Delaware, at home near the coast on the Delmarva Peninsula.
Recognized as an accomplished landscape painter in the region, Dumont's credits include: "Best New Artist to Plein Air Easton", "Best in Show" at the Regional Rehoboth Art League Exhibition and multiple awards from the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painter's Association.
Dumont's paintings are held in private collections and in the public collections of the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland and the Lewes Historical Society Museum in Delaware. She exhibits regularly and is represented by fine art galleries in the Mid-Atlantic region.
