Art has been the foundation of Kathy’s endeavors throughout her life: a young painter who became graphic communications major in college, and an art director in the communications business who returned to the joy of painting in 2012. Her mother is a painter, her father created mid-century modern furniture in his spare time. When asked by International Artist Magazine to contribute an 8-page demonstration article on her painting style, Kathy credited working as an art director for one of the largest advertising agencies in the world for a priceless education in the process of having a vision and creating art in many forms. Today, fellow artists in her Northern California community are a constant source of inspiration.
I am a Northern California contemporary painter who deeply respects and loves the positive energy that exists in the world around us. My work brings that energy forward in ways that collectors and viewers can see and feel. I am motivated to expand my body of work with this singular focus in mind. As such, to show in exhibitions, participate in auctions for exceptional causes, and be inspired by other artists is very important to me. I am grateful for solo exhibitions every other year or so, the growing number of private collections that include my work, and how my work has been responded to over the last ten years.
At this time, my work is representational. The stunning interplay of negative space between objects; the vibrancy of colors when brought forward and placed side by side; the movement that results from a successful composition; the majesty of the subject matter itself is a joy to portray. Fellow artists and those who have paved the way over the past decades and centuries are a constant source of inspiration.
