“I call myself a ‘Nostalgic Impressionist’ as a way of identifying the subject matter and style of painting that interest me most. No matter which part of America I paint, I’m really passionate about plein air and love getting lost in the wonderful process of it all!” Kathie maintains a studio and lives in Knoxville, Tennessee.
