I really enjoy Kathy’s artwork of oil and acrylic on canvas immensely. It has a profoundness and complexity that draw deep feelings of many elements that I connect with. She has a wonderful eye in capturing the true essence of her feelings by blending and shading and using fabrics and materials that really bring her paintings to life. I very much look forward to viewing her future studio exhibits. Thank you Kathy for bringing such beauty to the world.

Kathy is creative and highly skilled. Her artwork is inspired and inspirational. I purchased a piece from her that she turned into a small giclee than the original. She is personable, charming, gracious, patient, dependable, timely and out-of-this world talented. She is, in my opinion, the artist’s artist. Recommended without a shred of a doubt and in utter confidence.

When I first met Kathy at SOMArts, I soon understood her art was a candid reveal of her spirit and emotions. Looking at her installation was a bit like looking into her heart and soul. Kathy’s work is telling, open and graceful and I think anyone can relate to it. But more importantly, her work has a curious ambiguity which makes each time I look at a piece unique and interesting. I look forward to her new creations.
