Over the years Kathleen’s connection to nature has grown richer and more spiritual. In her Colorado studio she first connects with the spirits of the animals that she paints. Allowing the animal energies to work with and through her, Kathleen embeds their spirits into each colorful unique piece. Years ago Kathleen picked up a palette knife instead of a brush to work with her oil paints. And she has never looked back, growing progressively more playful and intuitive with the knife.
