Kathy was born and raised on Long Island’s south shore, in the small beach community of Point Lookout, New York.  She would spend summer days on the shore with her family. Her artwork is inspired and fostered by her love for the outdoors, noting the beauty and serenity of the landscapes that lay before her everyday. 

She earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree at The School of Visual Arts in New York. Having studied Illustration and graphic design, She worked for 23 years as an Art Director for a New York publishing company. Kathy has spent her life developing her painting style and subject matter. The shore of the beach to the many places around the world she has visited she draws on for her inspiration. 

Kathy's early exposure to creating art came when she was a young child constantly drawing and discovering her love of drawing the natural world. Kathy self taught herself for many years, until she attended The Art Students League for a summer art program, and then later onto college at SVA. 

Kathy continues to develop and experiment with new materials and techniques.
