An abstract painter at heart, Kathleen enjoys non-objective painting and a strong abstract “under structure” is a dominant theme in all her work. Motion, design and texture are paramount components in this series.
Watercolor has a spirit of its own and is my chosen partner in painting. I work with the fluidity, the chemical make up of paints and the free flowing qualities of color for each abstract start of a painting. Working with water, pigment, various substrates, gravity and, for my Frozen Chrystal series specifically, sub-freezing temperatures; I capture nature’s winter lace: that intricate frost pattern often seen in freezing streams and on windows.
