Paintings and Pottery. Observing nature and making stuff.
Kathleen paints coastal landscapes of her home in Tenakee Springs, Alaska, portraits of friends and family, and intimate landscapes of the North American Southwest. Her pottery vessels merge historical methods of working with clay and classical pottery forms with modern imagery inspired by the flora and fauna surrounding her home. As an artist and a teacher, Kathleen walks in two creative worlds - exploring and expressing her own vision and helping others to discover and develop theirs.
"I love to work in a variety of media, both two and three-dimensional. Much of my work is based upon close and direct observation of the natural world with an emphasis on the abstract designs found there. I am fortunate to be able to split my time between Tenakee Springs, Alaska and Arivaca, Arizona. Each region has spectacular scenery to inspire and invigorate my creative spirit."
