She signed up for art classes and started meeting with local art groups; she found painting and sketching to be a healing pastime.
Painting and sketching with vitality and movement, using heavy texture & tone to convey her emotion. Kathleen enjoys working with
oil, acrylic, and charcoal to create her mood provoking artwork.
