New Artist Spotlight: Deborah Colter, Jeannine Emmett, Kim McAninch and Cecy Turner

Every week, UGallery releases new art and welcomes new artists to the community. We love seeing what each new week will bring. Say “Hello” to Deborah T. Colter, Jeannine Emmett, Kim McAninch and Cecy Turner. These are UGallery’s newest artists! Read on below to learn a little bit more about their work.

Deborah T. Colter. Edgartown, Massachusetts.

An ethereal quality permeates throughout Deborah T. Colter’s work as she seeks inspiration from the view outside airplane windows. Her sense of space and dimension are heightened by her pairing of chaos and order. Through the complexity, a landscape’s beauty emerges. Deborah says, “As a starting point in my work I often think of the view from an airplane window and how the surface below is mapped out by the intervention of the human hand.”

Jeannine Emmett. Los Angeles, California.


Jeannine Emmett flows freely from abstract to impressionism to realism with her loose brushstrokes and evocative compositions. She wanders through a vast landscape of color to deliver scenes full of vibrancy and panache.

Kim McAninch. Rocky River, Ohio.


Kim McAninch’s experience as a wallpaper designer as well as an interior designer has laid the groundwork for her textural paintings. She creates depth by layering beautiful color upon beautiful color with just her palette knife for an overall cohesive style. She says, “My current goal is offer more information with less detail.”

Cecy Turner. Dallas, Texas.

Cecy Turner takes extra time to evaluate the composition and arrangement of each painting before she begins. It is this initial awareness that helps her create art with strong structure. Her emphasis on a piece’s focal point draws the viewer into landscapes that are both inviting and beautiful.
