Artist Bio

Kathleen Hamilton received her formal art education at the University of Illinois, receiving a BFA in Design (Advertising Design). During the 1980's she worked in the graphic design department of Chevron Corporation in San Francisco. Her love of museums took her back to school in the early 90's to study museums in depth. Kathleen worked for the Idaho Historical Society at the Old Penitentiary, the Springfield (Illinois) Children's Museum, and the San Diego Museum of Man. Since 2008, Kathleen has been semi-retired, and has time to spend on developing her painting, as well as volunteering to teach and promote children's art. Kathleen joined the COAL Board of Directors in 2011, and is co-director of Children's Shows.

Artist Statement

I am especially inspired by the Impressionists and post-Impressionists. I have always loved the vibrancy and use of color and pattern by Matisse in his paintings, and have attempted to capture those feelings in acrylic and mixed media. Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Boyce Lundstrom, a well known glass artist in Oceanside, and I have attempted to interpret the freedom and characteristics of impressionism into fused glass work. Every piece is a surprise! Life is short-try everything!
