218 West Hill Rd., Plainfield MA, 413-464-5628
Kathryn Jensen is a watercolor artist who has lived in the Hilltowns for 15 years painting local sites. Her favorite subjects are farms and houses juxtaposed with the natural world, the Westfield River, and industrial buildings. The layering of the built environment is a fascination of hers. Unlike artists who compose tableaus that do not actually exist, the specific place in the painting is important to her. Recently retired from her career as a psychotherapist, she is now occupied with growing fruit and nuts.
