Hello! My name is Kathy & I love art!
As a little girl, I spent many hours drawing & dreaming of becoming an artist. I enjoyed playing drawing games with my father and eventually asked him to build me my very first easel! I even played “art school” with my neighborhood friends, using my front door as a gallery space and proudly won my first art award in 3rd grade.
Many years later, I earned my BFA in Illustration from Paier College of Art. I chose to study illustration because I have always loved children’s book art and believe that it was this imagery that sparked my love of art.
After working professionally as an illustrator & retail visual stylist, I married my husband Brad, and together we have three creative children… Elise, Andrew & Evan… each with their own artistic talents!
In 2005, I developed an art enrichment program for my children’s school…ArtSmart! was born! I now offer my ArtSmart! programming through several local schools, libraries & art foundations.
In 2008, I stepped into my role as Director of Art Programming for the Trumbull Nature & Art Center, offering seasonal art & craft workshops, as well as Summer Art Camp.
In 2013, I proudly welcomed my students to ArtSmart! Studio, allowing me to offer creative experiences in a beautiful space of my very own.
I hope you’ll visit soon!
