A registered nurse for 35 years, events from her life inspire her pictorial quilted paintings.
She is 57 years old and is married to the same wonderful guy that she fell in love with 38 years ago.
She has 4 children, two adopted from Korea.
Kathy loves traveling and teaching nationally about the creative process. She exhibits widely in
international competition and has won many awards. Her quilts are frequently featured in museums,
magazines, calendars and the AQS website. Many of her quilts are in private collections.
Every creative act begins as a connection between the artist and their world. Exploration of that
moment of inspiration fuels the process of telling a story and making art. Results are never
predictable, as the discovery is different each time. A mastery of techniques and design will be noted
and appreciated by others, but will the magic that inspired the artist reach out and touch someone
else? When it does.... something big is shared.
