Artist Denise Dersch, currently based in South Jersey, works in watercolor. At times, she incorporates acrylic inks to enhance the color, fluid, and textural effects of her paintings. Most recently, she was awarded Honorable Mention (October 2020) at the Tish Fine Art Gallery in Chestertown, Maryland. Motivations for her paintings can be found in the farmlands and meadows of South Jersey or the wildlife, grasses, and coastal tributaries of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She believes painting is a personal expression of color, texture, value and shapes that feeds her creative soul. Denise holds a degree in Art Education from Rowan University and taught art in a public school setting for many years.
