Biography


Bernie (Bernadette) is a self taught artist, who loves the passion and the solitude of painting whether in her studio, or sitting plein air with the breeze and the sun on her back.  She concentrates on getting  onto the paper, the emotion she feels as she  is painting.  Bernie fell in love with watercolor as a medium, after taking some classes at several community colleges in the Los Angeles area while raising her children.  It was not until moving to the Central Coast with children grown and retired from her own promotional business in 2007,  that she was able to devote time to her discovered passion and apply it to the amazing beauty of the Central Coast of California.
Bernie was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio.  After obtaining a degree in journalism at Ohio University, she married Ed Kurtz, and moved to California.  She worked in the graphic art, advertising and printing business until starting her promotional business in 1984.  She has two grown children and four grandchildren.  Besides plein air, studio and watercolor painting, Bernie is an avid golfer.
 
 Bernadette is currently a member of Central Coast Watercolor Society, The Painters Group of San Luis Obispo Museum of Art and a proud member of S.L.O.P.E., San Luis Obispo Outdoor Painters for the Environment (www.slope-painters.com).
