Kathy’s parents were both ad agency pros in NYC for many years. Dad, art director and Mom, writer and sculptor, left the city to raise a family and moved to the country, buying a hundred acre farm in upstate New York that once was a working dairy farm. They had horses, cats, dogs and even chickens and geese at one point and their three children were always outside exploring or riding. Wildlife roamed everywhere deer, opossum, skunks, turkey, owls, and bears pretty much co-existed.
Coming from an artistic family, creative expression in its many forms was always nurtured. Kathy loved to draw and gained feedback from both dad and mom on how to improve. Kathy earned a marketing degree and put all sketchbooks aside to raise a family of her own (2 daughters) along with working in the family ad agency business which she now co-owns with her brother, Ken.
Kathy rediscovered her love of creative expression and particularly the use of tone and and color to communicate in a new language. “I am fascinated with how pigment, brush strokes and application techniques can create such beauty.”
My growth as an artist is never ending. Continual experimentation, regular practice and study across a wide range of media and substrates from acrylics, pastels, charcoal, inks and mark making tools is both exciting and rewarding. I try to let the media direct me and the results can be phenomenal.
Kathy now lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband and Princess Sophie, a 10 pound Peekapoo who rules over the family. Kathy’s pieces can be found across the country from New York to Florida, Hawaii to Maryland .
