Kathleen (Kathy) has been drawing and doodling since early childhood.
A Connecticut native, Kathy attended the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT.
While at UConn, she received instruction in Watercolor and Oil Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Art History, Graphic Design and Illustration.
She began her career working in various computer graphics positions, but over the past decade, has focused solely on hand-created art.
Kathy is a mixed-media artist who employs a diversity of materials and techniques in her work; from painted glassware, collage, and colored pencil, to pastels, acrylics, altered books, and most recently, photography.
“I begin nearly every new piece with a loosely-structured plan in mind.
As my work progresses, I allow the piece to marinate and to evolve”, Kathy says of her work. The resulting artwork often conveys a quirky, whimsical, and somewhat ‘funky’ vibe.
“A part of my soul, and personality goes into everything I make. Creating art has always been exciting, challenging, and very centering. It is most definitely, a labor of love,” Kathy says.
She was selected by the Nashua Area Artists’ Association, to display her work in the Art Hub Gallery as Artist of the Month in January 2018.
Her collage entitled Birds of a Feather won an honorable mention at the NAAA juried competition ‘Community’ in May of 2018.
