“My mixed-media pieces flow directly from my vivid and colorful imagination and seldom use any reference material. I often add a bit of whimsy to my pieces.” Kathy explains.
“I incorporate hand-painted and hand-formed papers; metal leaf; images that are drawn or painted on the computer; photography; mono-printing; painting; sketching; and more, as I create a piece. I build up layers as I go, adding mystery and depth to the pieces. I love the array of acrylic media available to create texture and other effects. “
Kathy’s work has been shown extensively in Port Townsend and Port Ludlow. She received a Merit award at the Northwind Arts Center Collage Show. AAUW selected two of her mixed-media pieces for a national art competition.
