After graduating from The University of Tennessee in Art Education and Fine Arts, Kathie received early recognition for pastel works. But it was 2009 when she found a home in painting oils en plein air.
Kathie resides with her husband and maintains a studio in Knoxville, Tennessee. She has traveled extensively across America for plein air competitions and has received several honors. Kathie’s original works have sold internationally and she is quite proud of her fine art gallery representation.
