Biography Icon

 Kathy is best known for her paintings of horses and wildlife. The fine detail
she achieves in her renderings of animals gives them a look of living creatures.

Asked about her background and interest in art, she replied, "I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. As an artist, my love for nature, especially horses, has been combined with my love of art.

I got that love of art from my parents. They took me to the opening day of the National Cowboy Hall of Fame (now known as the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum). We were literally on the front row of the opening ceremonies."

"I was born in San Antonio, Texas, and grew up in Oklahoma. After highschool, I attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. On completion of my studies, I returned to Oklahoma. I am very fortunate to be in this area, with all of the wonderful material, especially horses, to work with. There are so many world, or national level shows, ropings, and rodeos, as well as Remington Park race track, all of which provide me with an opportunity to be out there getting ideas for paintings."

"My husband, Jerry, our daughter, Sydney, and I live in the country. Jerry raises thoroughbred horses, which I enjoy since I love to do paintings of the babies."

.Kathy is versatile in several mediums including oils, pencil, watercolor, and gauche. Her art, created with these mediums, has been accepted in a number of promienent national art shows such as the American Academy of Equine Art at the Kentucky Horse park, Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum Western Spirit Show in 1995, 1996, 1997, and the 1997 National Wildlife Art Show in Kansas City.

Her efforts have been acclaimed with many awards, most noted of which are:
Best of Show in the 1994 Duncan Fall Fest, and Best of Show in Western Category at the Kansas City National Wildlife Art Show.
