Kent Wallis' recollections of his earliest interests in art are childhood experiments with crayon and drawing. A fourth grade teacher noticed unusual capacities and encouraged his artistic development. Unfortunately, Kent had another consuming interest -- athletics. As he grew, sports monopolized his time. It would be 20 years before he returned to developing his artistic abilities. In 1988 Kent Wallis became a member of the Society of American Impressionists, an elite society of 40 of the nation's best contemporary Impressionist painters. Wallis is also one of the 10 charter members of the Northern California Society of Plein Air Painters and a member of the Plein Air Painters of America, a select group of Impressionists headquartered on Catalina Island.
