Kathy completed her formal studies at the University of Washington. She has won numerous awards and has had numerous one woman shows as well as group shows throughout the world. Her work is showing in many galleries worldwide, as well as in the U.S. Her work is collected by celebrities such as Carrie Fisher, Bob Mackie, Rickie Lee Jones, Peter Fonda, and Angie Dickenson as well as art collectors all over the world. Her "people and creatures" are not the usual. They appear to explode across her canvas... serious little fantasy souls, following trivial or important pursuits as impatiently and honestly as the artist painted them. Kathy has the rare skill of coaxing you into a seemingly frivolous world, leaving you to discover her depth of skill and perception. Kathy works in many media including oil, acrylic, and mixed-media, and her work is available not only in original form but also in monoprint/chine, serigraphs, posters, and giclee.
