When I was in grade school on Bainbridge Island, I had a wonderful teacher named Mr.Guttebo, who encouraged me in my art making. He also patiently answered my child-questions about why people did the things they did, which began my lifelong interest in how human's operate and why.
Many adventures later, I graduated in 1980 from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. with a B.S. in Applied Art and Design.

Pictures often pop into my mind almost fully rendered while listening to music, or reading, while working in the garden, and often while driving. The picture itself determines what medium I choose. Some works call for tight renderings which in turn want either colored pencil or graphite or pen and ink, and others are looser and want to be rendered in oils or oil pastels. Always, I love thick, rich colors because they more match my passion for life and observations. Mostly these mind pictures have to do with our human interactions with each other and the earth; and while these are serious subjects, they tend to come out of me slightly skewed. I can't imagine life without humor - it would just be too sad and hard. Perhaps you will look at the works and think about the way I see things and smile.

As Bob Dylan said, "I'm not trying to say anything. I'm just singing about what I see."

Thank you. Kate
