Through color, texture, and high touch surfaces, Kathleen’s artwork focuses on memory, transition and repetition. She works in a variety of media and often uses classroom detritus in her mixed media work.
“It is through art history and art making that I best understand the human condition and, in particular, what it means and has meant to be female.”
A lifelong interest in art, education and the creative process has nurtured three careers. After graduation with a degree in marketing from San Diego State University, she worked as a corporate trainer and manager. In 1990, she translated corporate skills into an award-winning children’s art program, Fine Artists™.
Her professional art career began in 2007. Since then she has exhibited throughout San Diego and Southern California, including solo shows in Liberty Station, Ray Street Arts District, Japanese Friendship Garden, and Sophie’s Gallery. She has been juried into the Oceanside Museum of Art, Cannon Gallery, San Diego Art Institute, Orange County Contemporary Art Association and La Jolla Athenaeum. Her work is held in personal collections throughout the United States and Japan.
