Nature and it’s complexities has always been a passion of Kathleen’s. The expressive results are most often seen in paintings of flowers, horses and birds. In Kathleen’s words; “My images are always symbolic of human experiences, my own personal inspirations, joys, interests and concerns in life.”
Flower paintings often include buds, full blooms, dead flowers and seed pods, representing man’s own cycles of life/death/life.
The Horses also carry a message beyond the beauty of the animal to symbolize perseverance in our journeys as we reach a “gentle place of acceptance”.
Birds have always been significant in Kathleen’s work. A repeated image and messenger throughout her life. Recent work includes the Raven, a creature of high intelligence, creativity, strong family ties, complex communication and, like us, possesses great survival intelligence.
