Born, Berkeley, California
Lives, Orinda, California

As a child and young adult, Kath always enjoyed drawing and painting but never felt she was “good enough” to pursue a career as a fine artist.  As an adult, she nibbled around the edges of the art world by working in freelance graphic design, owning and operating an art supply store in Orinda, and instructing calligraphy.   Now, closing on seventy, she has finally allowed herself to become an “emerging artist” and plans to continue learning and creating art for the rest of her life.
