Kitty Marini's watercolors pay homage to nature in all its colorful glory

You can find art all over town -- not just on gallery walls. In this series, we'll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

Michigan-born Kitty Marini is one cat with more than nine lives: She's done everything from dabble in tourism (she gave tours at Coors Field) to owning an independent bookstore on South Broadway to managing a local candle shop to working for the Colorado Pen Company. And now, in "retirement," she's become an artist, carving out her own niche by turning things like sticky Halloween spider webs and fallen leaves into some seriously beautiful, nature-inspired art.
