Magalia Rose Studio-Kathleen Presentati



  I have enjoyed some aspect of art my entire life starting in kindergarten.  Exploring realism with oils and acrylics was my first passion, but I was always drawn to watercolor.  After retirement the time had come to explore this fascinating medium.


Beginning with lessons at the Paradise Art Center over 12 years ago I fell in love with the dynamic and ever changing essence of watercolor and never looked back.


I have taught watercolor for over 10 years and have followed a simple philosophy...teach techniques and not a style.  This allows class members to explore their personal artistic vision.


My paintings have been shown at the Sacramento Fine Arts Center, the Chico Art Center and the Paradise Art Center.  I have won numerous awards but consider teaching the greatest experience of my life.
