“Painting opens doors of discovery and allows me to see the unseen. I don’t think of myself as a Realist or an Expressionist but more of a Realistic Expressionist. Improving on the beauty of nature is beyond me. I leave that to the creator. But I do see myself as one who looks beyond the visual surface to the inner spirit and that’s what my paintings are all about. A moment in time … a stage set, eyes focused on the main actor, and the audience seeks to interpret the meaning of the scene.”
Kathy is a member of the Texoma Arts Association and is a registered Choctaw Indian Artist. She has won numerous awards and honors for her paintings including paintings selected for the USDA National Native American Poster Award for 2009 and 2012.
