About Kathy Turner
Family Member– Army 1943-1945
I’m originally from a small country town in upstate New York, but I am a longtime resident of Arlington, VA, and always an artist at heart. I got my creative genes from my mother, but my father was the veteran who gave me the stories behind my art. I am primarily a painter but I am happy working in many different art mediums, and in whatever style or technique that best suits the message I wish to convey. I have long been an active supporter and participant in exhibits and volunteering at many local art venues, such as Del Ray Artisans, The Art League, The Gallery Underground, Capitol Hill Art League, Glen Echo Park, and more. I feel it is very important to support local artists and craftspeople.
Art to me equals creativity, a means of self-expression, to tell a story or make a point, and a way to vent difficult emotions. I am always happy to share my artistic vision and see how the public reacts to it.
