When Kathy won a prize in grade three for her handwriting using a Sheaffer cartridge pen, her love affair with the alphabet began. As a teen she was smitten with the felt pen and the clean graphic line drawings she made to accompany her favourite hand drawn fonts. As a young mother she spent weekends learning calligraphy and hand lettering from international instructors. In later years with more formal art school behind her she now works from her home-based studio in Victoria BC creating compelling mixed media pieces in her own unique style. Kathy is represented by the Lantzville Art Gallery, Lantzville BC.
