The “Industrial Evolution” series of paintings is inspired by the changes in the American Landscape as Kathleen observes them. Visual references abound from Kathleen’s iron mining home on Lake Superior in Northern Michigan, across the agricultural heartland of the USA as well as Internationally.
She has painted the colors and deep textures of the essence of this evolution. Often included is a raven: a creature of great adaptability, creativity and survival intelligence. The raven is figuring its next move in the evolution of industry and survival, as are we.
