Impressed by the beauty of nature in the tropics, Kathy Lewis began painting flowers as a teenager, while living and traveling in Africa with her parents. After returning to the United States, she began to photograph what she saw: the beauty and detail of an endless repetition of natural forms. While in New York City, she attended NYU and received a B.S. in Art. She was fascinated by the patterns and textures around her, and captured on film the stark realities of brick walls and peeling paint.
Now living in northern California, Kathy continues her art with a vivid and exciting series of watercolor and oil paintings of a dazzling variety of flowers, in a style that has been compared to that of Georgia O'Keeffe. Kathy's paintings represent her interpretation of every nuance of each subject, captured forever in its full glory. Her art shows an insight into the endless bounty of detail which surrounds us, encouraging us all to enrich our lives by taking a closer look at our wonderful, precious world, and reminding us that we are a part of it!
Kathy has had one-woman shows locally in Mendocino County, CA, in the San Francisco Bay Area, in Victoria, BC, Canada, and in The Hague, The Netherlands. Her artwork is part of private collections in Europe, Canada, and the U.S.A.
