Born and raised in Southern California, Denise Du Broy earned her BA in Art at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and pursued post-graduate studies at San Francisco Art Institute. She taught art for twelve years at Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, California. Du Broy and her family have lived and ranched (buffalo) in the Black Hills and Badlands of South Dakota since 1993.
Du Broy's oil paintings on Yupo synthetic paper explore the relationship between light, color, space and the rural landscape of western South Dakota.
The striking luminosity of her paintings is achieved by the unique characteristics of Yupo paper and the original painting techniques she has developed over many years of exploration and experimentation. Her work is included in the collections, of many well-known entities, including:
Warner Brothers Studios Saks Fifth Avenue
Harvard Business School Mass. Institute of Technology
Scripps Hospital Olympus Camera Corp.
St. John's Hospital Hyatt Regency Hotels
Meditek Corp. Meyers Corp.
Du Broy's paintings are abstract and intuitive. They are not narrative or literal landscapes, but are deeply influenced by both a "birds-eye view" as well as an "insect's view" of the shapes and colors that dominate the western landscape; long country roads, railroad tracks, stock ponds, fence and section lines, stray rocks and leaves, airborne cotton, meandering creeks and sprawling pastures of different colored grasses.
