Here is a fantastic opportunity to study with Kathleen while she walks you through the process of creating her sunflower paintings. Bold stokes with the palette knives combined with the thick textures of the paints are sure to get your creative juices flowing. All of your supplies are provided so experimenting for the first time with these techniques is a breeze.
You MUST register to secure a seat at this workshop. Space is limited so don't delay. 


      One of my collectors once said to me, "I don't think you see the world like everyone else does. I think you see something that the rest of us miss." That statement embodies my whole goal for creating art. Each painting I create is an invitation for the viewer to step into my world and experience it through my eyes.
My inspiration comes from the things that I find to be beautiful and the places I have fallen in love with. Each painting is a reflection of where my soul longs to be. The paintings I create give the viewer a momentary escape from reality, into the world my collector spoke about. I take those perfect moments in nature and put them in motion, so that the entire world can feel the experience.
The sheer beauty of the world will never cease to amaze me. It is my goal to invite the viewer to walk right into my paintings and experience the fight of the fish, the breeze of the ocean, the intense colors of the mountains, as if they are truly in that exact moment. The vivid colors and rich textures that dominate my canvases reflect an intense energy that is both invigorating and breath taking.
In essence, art should make your soul sing. It should fill your heart with joy and should bring to you a sense of peace....and it should be understandable. It is my goal to paint things that are so powerfully beautiful, that the viewer cannot help but be moved.
Happy Creating
Love Kathleen
