Katharine moved from the Big Island and joined the Maui art community in 1999. “I wanted to meet Maui artists and take advantage of the all the exceptional classes offered by local and visiting artists. Living close to the Hui No’eau gave me the opportunity to take classes in life drawing, oil, watercolors and printmaking."
"Maui offers many unique diverse climates and vistas for plein air painting. I'm passionate about figure drawing,painting flowers,sunsets and seascapes. I’ve taken many art therapy classes which have benefited me personally as well as professionally. To me, art, art therapy, experiential painting and painting in general are powerful tools for transformation.”
“I enjoy experimenting and use a variety of media such as oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, pen and ink. I have had the pleasure to study with many talented Maui artists George Allan, Connie Adams, Carmen Gardener, Richard Nelson, Tony Walholm, Jaisey Hanlon, Lee Shapiro, Michael Clemints and Paul Mullowney. I also have had the great fortune to study with Kevin MacPherson, Plein Air (oil painter), Roger Witlock and Timothy Clark(watercolorists)."
“I enjoy the diversity and the uniqueness of Maui art and artists. I feel blessed to live on Maui where light and color are brillant and full.”
