The differences between my art and photography are night and day, like my varied interests. I’m constantly amazed by the serene beauty and magical happenings that happen in Nature. Architecture has always been an interest of mine as well. The juxtaposition of the organic with man-made is most interesting. My drawings and paintings often convey a sensual feel. I depict the beautiful nude female with a simplification of form.
I paint in an effort to give solid form to ideas that increase the depth of my experiences in the process of living. American Modernists and their quest to discover a history of art particular to the country they lived in connect me in my personal exploration with European impressionist and post- impressionist artists. I strive to continue their work and further my own understanding of how art concurrently creates and connects us to our culture.

My work is a contrast of abstract design with geometric order. I’m drawn to repeating images and tend to build those into my work, while at the same time, I like looser brushstrokes and flowing lines. To me, that feels similar to life. You organize and schedule life, but there are so many unexpected life events. It’s a mix of order and chaos.

My background in art education empha- sizes a strong foundation of classical art training, greatly influencing my artistic focus and direction. My intent is to capture, on paper or canvas, mysterious and thought provoking scenes. Nature with its moods and soft edges has always inspired me to draw and paint abstracts, landscapes or figure studies. My art is in private collections nationwide; I've exhibited in galleries and juried shows in S. California, NW Arkansas and S. Oregon.
Inspired by French and Italian countrysides and her Southern Oregon surroundings, Katharine’s art is filled with sun-drenched colors that create charming, elegant and whimsical landscapes and vignettes. After earning her art degree from the University of Wisconsin, she pursued painting as her main focus, specializing in watercolor, acrylic and oils. Katharine continues to explore new themes from the whimsical to creative realism.
My art is guided by my instincts, my curious nature & sense of discovery, and great music rocking on my stereo. My goal is not perfection but rather to honestly represent my efforts & the outcome each new creation presents, whether it's capturing the alluring beauty of a woman or the juxtaposition of various metals & found objects together to create a unique piece of art. I currently work in oil, acrylic, watercolor, metal (copper's a favorite) and photography.

Though some people call me a 'paper artist' because most of the art that I make uses paper, I like to think of my art as creating memories in time. I commemorate old memories and create new ones. I want my art to touch people at the heart level, the emotional part of their being. The media I use include watercolor, bookbinding, calligraphy, paste papers, paper folding and lots of love.
