Kathleen will be in the gallery the weekend of May 14th, 15th & 16th. She is looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.
Kathleen’s recent works are small works en plein air and larger studio paintings. She delights in creating the illusion of space, light and place with oil paint. Sometimes while one is painting, light, color and the brush take over and the thought process is suspended; that is Kathleen’s favorite time.
Kathleen started painting outdoors as a child with lessons from a local artist in her garden. Her work draws inspiration from nature and a sense of place. One of her earliest memories is running through beams of sunlight in a neighbor’s yard. She “chases the light” with her paintings and continues to be profoundly influenced by light.
Kathleen holds a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, an MFA from California College of Art, and has studied at the Jerusalem Studio School in Civita Castellana, Italy. She maintains studios in Berkeley and Volcano, CA. Kathleen is represented by the Benicia Plein Air Gallery and the Valley Art Gallery of Walnut Creek, CA.
