I work daily at my studio, A Koch Studios, in the Livestock Exchange Building, West Bottoms arts district of Kansas City. I am endlessly inspired by the world around me.
I specialize in oils, acrylics and mixed media works in a colorful representational style. Subjects are often thematic for larger solo exhibitions, but I also paint commissions with still lifes, landscapes and portraits. My work is in corporate and private collections throughout the world.
I have taught at art institutions and schools throughout the area for over 20 years. Currently teaching at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in KC, Eva Reynolds Fine Arts Gallery, Leawood, KS and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ.
I am active with many local arts and community organizations, serving on boards and helping to raise awareness. I jury art events, help with local schools, illustrate books/covers, mentor new artists and stay busy.....as artists have to do.......lately public art has become a new conduit for sharing my views.
Individual studio tours can be arranged by appointment. Art is available at Eva Reynolds Fine Art Gallery, The Bunker Center for the Arts, WWI Museum & Memorial and Leedy-Voulkos Art Gallery. Don't miss the KC Streetcar with my poppies on the inside and outside!
