Kathie’s art-journey has taken her through hills and valleys, twists and turns, yet laced with great encouragement from family, friends, fellow artists and collectors! Over a lifetime her creativity was fueled by an ever-present attraction to things of God, childhood memories of a family in the building trade, and a high school art teacher that uncovered Kathie’s love for beauty and a wide variety of artistic abilities.

After graduating from The University of Tennessee in Art Education and Fine Arts, Kathie received early recognition for pastel works. But it was 2009 when her artistic endeavors soared, setting her on a course for a career as an oil painter.

I call myself a “Nostalgic Impressionist” as a way of identifying the subjects and style of painting that interest me most. Also I am really passionate about plein air painting and allow myself to get lost in the wonderful process of it all!

Kathie resides with her husband and maintains a studio in Knoxville, Tennessee. She travels extensively and spends much of her time oil painting in the great outdoors. Also, teaching workshops and participating in plein air events occupies much of her calendar. Kathie’s original works have sold internationally and she is quite proud of her fine art gallery representation.
