Artist Biography

Kathleen R. Bates is a self-taught artist working mainly in watercolors and oils. Her watercolors are characterized by saturated, intense colors and realistic, illustrative style after the example of Audubon, especially when portraying birds and flowers. Her oil landscapes, on the other hand, are painted in an impressionistic style, and painting en plein air in the tradition of the great impressionists of the 19th and 20th centuries is a favorite setting. Kathleen is a native of Florida, and developed a strong appreciation for nature early on, beginning to draw and paint in childhood. Her paintings are to be found in private collections across America.
