|Biography of Dennis L. Knecht |
Dennis Leigh Knecht born in Illinois and grew up in the town of Belleville. Dennis attended art classes in high school and at Belleville Area College, where he produced and sold many drawings and paintings similar to the style of the "Red Alien" offered in the gallery. When he was drafted into military service in 1970, he dropped his art - leaving "Abstract Nude 1" uncompleted. It was long forgotten until it was returned to him by his mother and completed in 2000.
Upon leaving the military, in 1978, Dennis felt the urge to pick up a brush once more. In his spare time, he painted and sold several landscapes where he lived in Houston, Texas. Dennis found more freedom of expression when working alone experimenting with different media and styles of painting. Since he moved to Massachusetts, he has painted landscapes, drawn and painted figures, and painted abstracts.
His creative side has allowed Dennis to get lost in the details of his art and create paintings that expressed feelings of his life's satisfactions and turmoil. The desire to develop his art has contributed to different styles among his works. He loves painting both the natural and the abstract.
