Kathryn’s art is often about nature. Even if she painted a portrait , the painting was inspired by nature. Viewers of her paintings and collages say they have a brightness and light about them. She often defines the small details but still has looseness in the painting process. Kathryn loves color and envisions rich, bright paintings with dark contrasts.

“My first loves are my husband and my children, so the love of painting came much later. I was born into an artistic family of musicians, wood craftsmen, photographers, muralists, jewelers, and fiber & glass artists.”
