This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist:

K. L. McKenna and family spent her childhood summers digging for dinosaurs with her paleontologist father, who worked for the Museum of Natural History in New York.  The family and crew camped in many remote places located in Wyoming and Colorado, searching for fossils.  These early experiences planted the seed for her inspiration in painting landscapes of the West.

K. L. McKenna's scenes of Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming and Montana reflect her enthusiasm and spiritual connection to the geology of the west, where she paints on site throughout the year.

McKenna has an B.A. in American Studies from Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT and a Masters Degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She also studied painting with Mary Buckley at Pratt and with Nicholas Buhalis at the Kingston School of Art, Kingston, NY.

She utilized her Masters Degree while working in New York City and throughout the United States and Canada as a GUI designer for 9 years until she decided to paint full time in 1993.

K.L. McKenna, a resident of Woodstock, NY, is currently on the board of Pratt Institute, the Arts Society of Kingston, and the Woodstock Guild.

Biography from Red Raven Gallery:
Through organic and unique usage of color, light and spirit, K.L.McKenna's style captures radical new perspectives on the traditional landscape. Her paintings are not just paintings of landscapes but color harmonies of a very high and unusual order.

K.L.McKenna’s scenes of Colorado, Arizona, Wyoming and Montana reflect her enthusiasm and spiritual connection to the geology of the West, where she paints on site throughout the year.

K.L.McKenna, a resident of Woodstock, NY and Ward, CO, has had extensive experience working for museums and top exhibition design firms in NewYork, such as Ralph Appelbaum Associates and Albert Woods Design. She worked throughout the States and Canada as a Graphical User Interface Designer for major banking firms such as Citibank, First Boston and Lehman Brothers.

K.L.McKenna was awarded a U.S. Patent for The Geozoo, an educational toy design. She studied painting first with Mary Buckley at Pratt Institute and later with Nicholas Buhalis at the Kingston School of Art, Kingston, NY. She is a Board Member of Pratt Institute, the Woodstock Guild, and the Arts Society of Kingston (A.S.K.), which she co-founded in 1995. She is also a member of the Woodstock Artists Association.
