Kathy lives and maintains her studio near Waldport, OR.
Kathy grew up in the wooded areas of Oregon, as her father was a forester. She spent much of her childhood traveling forest roads with her family, hiking, picking wild flowers, resting by clear streams. These are some of Kathy's best memories.
She continues her travels through the back roads of Oregon with Bob, her husband, photographing the subjects of her paintings. Water has become her inspiration, whether it's a calm stream, rushing river, or the crashing ocean waves. Kathy enjoys sharing her talents through teaching oil painting workshops and classes. She now resides in her artistic hideaway on the Central Oregon Coast.
Kathy's work has been shown in several galleries throughout the Northwest. Her commissions can be found hanging in many private and corporate collections in the US and overseas. Kathy sells original oil paintings, laser prints, giclée gallery wraps, prints cards and tiles of her work. Commission's are welcome.
This section is intended as more a history of the work this artist has displayed over time at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery, and not a catalog of what's currently available. As such, it is useful more as a means of seeing the evolution of an artists' work, rather than a representation of what the artist is currently creating. Techniques, colors used, and even form of color are elements that are likely to change over time. Also, some pieces will be unique combinations of color and movement that artist may not be able to reproduce.
The gallery at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery includes work from nearly 50 different artists, all from the Pacific Northwest, almost all from Oregon, and most from Oregon's central coast. Whereas Bob creates his work exclusively within our studio, the other artists have their own studios in which they create their work. Though our gallery basically just purchases their work to sell, we like to promote them in any way we can - which includes showcasing them on our website. Their appearance here is in no way meant to imply that they work for Bob or for Ocean Beaches Glassblowing.
