She also studied in Italy at the Positano Art Institute. She’s a contemporary watercolor and oil paint artist from Asia. Her paintings are included in numerous corporate and private collections including those of Charles Shipman, Nedda Casei, Metropolitan Opera mezzo soprano and former President of the American Guild of Musical Artists, judge Rosalyn Higgins, former President of the International Court of Justice, and her husband Lord Terence Higgins of the English Parliament, Sperry Rand Corporation, Warner Communications and Johnson’s Wax. She has received recognition for her compelling lyrical landscape paintings and has been represented in galleries throughout Europe and the United States, as well as at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria.
Kingsley is listed in “Who’s Who in the world”, “Who’s Who in the South and South West”, and “Who’s Who of American Women”. Kingsley’s art has attracted widespread media attention. She believes that painting is a glorious adventure of investigation, decision and discovery, and her inventively colored and meditative interpretations of nature have earned her high honors and broad praise. As a painter, she’s both disciplined and prolific. Her multi-layered and large paintings are shrouded in mystery and imbued with dream-like auras; she accomplishes them through meticulous layering, scraping and glazing. Her small, intimate watercolors on rice paper reflect her love and study of traditional Japanese landscape.
