About this artist

Kathy Anderson is best known for her unique interpretation of flowers and gardens, and intimate scenes of landscape. Working in oils and painting mostly from life, her focus is on a strong design and movement in the painting, keeping the subject as naturally as you would find it. Her style is representational but goes a step further into reality as in the painting “Red Tulips and Oriole” or “September Garden”.

Kathy is included in many prestigious private collections, is a master signature member of Oil Painters of America, an artist member of the Salmagundi Club NY, and is in the permanent collection of the National Arts Club, NYC. She teaches workshops in the US and abroad and has three popular videos.

She is lucky to be able to call personal friends two of our living masters – Richard Schmid and Everett Raymond Kinstler. She has spent countless times with each of them, soaking up their wisdom and life stories.

“I see paintings everywhere- every flower, rock, tree, dapple of light, sparkling waterfall –there’s no end to subject matter for an artist when your eyes are always open.”
