Kathy's Artistry

Where creativity rules!

Image About the company 1

Living in the Sonoran desert, the beautiful colors of the foliage and total environment inspire me to create works of various subjects. I work in pastel, watercolor, and acrylics. Also, I have created individually designed and painted mannequins. Years ago, I worked in oils. A lull occurred due to work, family and time just went by. In the last few years, since I have moved to Arizona from New Jersey, I have jumped back in using a  variety of mediums  and totally enjoy creating pieces as requested or to sell a favorite piece. I have more recently produced abstract pieces on fairly large canvases. I grew up and lived in New Jersey for over 50 years and currently live in Cave Creek, AZ and love it! I, of course, own several parrots!

Most of the work shown is done in sizes ranging from 12 x 14- 20 x 20 for pastels, on sanded Art paper, and for paints, on canvas, some gallery wrapped in larger sizes. Thank you for visiting my site.
