Biography


          




Having lived in Canandaigua nearly all her life, Kathy is so very cognizant of the beauty that surrounds one here in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.
In her youth, she began craft-painting in acrylics on a variety of objects: boxes, furniture, baskets, rocks, and such. After retirement from 33 years of teaching English language arts to middle school students, she set upon this second career in painting in 2011.
Currently her work is mostly in oil, the medium in which she has the most experience in the studio and en plein air. She also enjoys the challenges of watercolor and soft pastels.
With no formal art education, she has sought other local artists to instruct and mentor her. Research, workshops, and viewing online classes advances her technique. She shows her work in local exhibits and previously in festivals around the state and in Canada.
In addition to painting, she also enjoys other artistic endeavors. Words are important to her, as well. She enjoys composing poetry to accompany her paintings, as well. In recent years she has researched, written, and performed in dramatic works about female artists and other women of interest.
