Biography


KATHRYN WEISBERG 
SIGNATURE MEMBER: Artists for Conservation
Member Associations: OPA, AIS, LPAPA, PAPI, AWA, California Art Club, Artists Saving Wildlife
 
Kathryn Weisberg grew up in the rural foothills of Mt.

Surrounded by the majestic Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains, she has kept a Studio there for 15 years.  Weisberg has traveled extensively through Mexico and South America, Europe, Scandinavia, and the Arctic. She has spent time under water as a Master Diver and climbing in the Andes in search of the colorful people, wildlife and landscapes that comprise her work.
