Kathleen, born in 1957 in Miami, Florida, raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from the University of Miami in 1981 and continued in this profession for the next ten years. Since 1994 Kathleen has been using her artistic talent to paint professionally, employing both watercolors and oils. As one of the country’s leading “licensed artists”, her artwork is published by numerous manufacturers and can be found on hundreds of home décor and stationery products in various gift shops, department stores, home décor stores, resorts, galleries, and private collections, both nationally and internationally.
Presently, Kathleen finds herself painting in a more “painterly”, impressionistic style, often in “PleinAir”, being recognized and awarded with great acceptance. Finding much of her inspiration from coastal scenes and quaint cottages, the impressions of peace and solitude, a hallmark of her work, invite the viewer into each scene to spend time resting, reading and praying.
