My art work is my life and what I love doing. Sometimes I work/play on my art 24 hours a day.

I started out as a technician working for Kodak when I was 21 years old. Went to night school while I worked at Kodak and got my BS in Chemistry. Left Kodak at 29 because I wanted to become an artist. Took many painting classes and at 35 and went back to school to get my MFA in painting.

I have been showing my artwork for more than 40 years now.

About 8 years ago I acquired the studio next to my studio and remodeled into my own gallery, this freed me up to be able to make any kind of art that I can imagine.

I see my art as a journey, a learning experience, a challenge to myself of something that want to learn more about.

Right now I am working on an alphabet of 20 letters that when completed will become an autobiographical book. Each letter of the alphabet is a chapter of this book and a themed art installation. Samples of my previous exhibits are: “A is for Art”“F is for Fantasy”, “M is for Mother”, “P is for Places”. “W is for WordPainting.”

Upcoming exhibits that I already started working on are: “G is for Gourmet” in 2016, “Destiny” a book installation and a collaboration with Martha Schermerhorn in 2017, “D is for DNA” in 2021, “H is for Henry” A screenplay/installation for a movie about my grandfather in 2023.

  6. Oh, my gosh, Kathy!!! You are in ROCHESTER! We just moved from there two years ago, but I’m still a grad student at the U of R! I wish I had know about you, and met you back then! Today I was able to get a chance to dig into your blog, and it’s like chocolate covered cherries. And reading your about…. it was so inspiring. As a grad student, I know my calling is in education, and I’m 41… starting a new career of sorts in academia. But, my life is starting to come full circle – I chose biology because my parents told me that i could never make a career in writing or art, even though my teachers really wanted me to. But now, doing research, I find that I am doing the writing. I feel, once I graduate, that hopefully in my spare time, I will get to pick up art again, too. You’ve picked up a fan, Kathy. Eager to learn more about you, and to see the world through your eyes. It’s so beautiful!!! ^.^

      • You know, I might actually be in Rochester at around that time? I evaluate a program at RIT, and I come out there to run some interviews. I will for sure make time for it when I am there. Really glad you stopped by my blog, and as a result, I found yours. It’s quite a treasure! …as are you. ^.^
