Denise Dumont is a painter who, from early on, has been drawn to the landscapes and cityscapes of the Atlantic Coast. Originally from New York, she currently lives in Delaware and is inspired today by her Chesapeake and Delaware Bay surroundings and her travels beyond.

Denise studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1984 from Parsons School of Design. Among her influences are the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Realist painters of the 19th & 20th century, in particular William Merritt Chase, Edouard Vuillard and Fairfield Porter.
