About Denise Bellon West

Denise has been actively painting for over fifteen years.  Color is her main focus and is what fuels her passion to paint, always with a fresh, contemporary flair.

Although largely self-taught, Denise has studied at the Loveland Academy of Fine Arts, Foothills Art Center in Golden, the Art Students’ League of Denver, and with many nationally known artists.

She has held numerous solo art exhibits and has been in many galleries and juried art shows.  Her paintings are in private and corporate collections across the country.
