Family Member– Army 1943-1945
About the Art: This piece was based upon a WWII era photograph of soldiers stationed in India, in this case boarding a train. The purpose of painting this artwork was to show the day-to-day soldier’s life at that time and place.
About the Artist: Originally from a small country town in upstate New York, Kathy is a longtime resident of Northern Virginia, and always an artist at heart. She got her creative genes from her mother, but her father was the veteran who gave her the stories behind her art. Kathy is primarily a painter but she is happy working in many different art mediums, and in whatever style or technique that best suits her message. She has 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.
Artist’s Experience: “Art 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. Thanks to Uniting US for helping share my creations and spread the word about how arts heal, communicate, and unite communities.”
