Kathryn was born in sunny California. She graduated from the University of Nevada with a BA in Speech Communication. For over 20 years she has been a professional artist working primarily in American Folk Art . Unforeseen life challenges led her to impressionist/expressionist art. Sometimes called a non-conformist, she uses art as a means to find the voice within. "See it, feel it, express it; it's my way of dealing with the world, my head, and my heart."
