My exhibition is inspired by water—the ever changing and precious nature of this life-giving resource. I like to explore the abstract forms that water can create. This exhibition includes watercolor and acrylic paintings inspired my travels throughout Wisconsin, the United States and abroad.
I have worked as a fine art painter and a graphic designer since graduating college with a bachelor of fine arts degree. My work is collected by individuals and corporations throughout the United States and is on display at several Fox Valley galleries and online at kathrynwedge.com and portalwisconsin.org. I am a signature member of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society and Northwest Watercolor Society and a professional member of the Wisconsin Visual Artists. I originally became aware of the Continuing Studies exhibit opportunity through the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Arts Board and previously exhibited at Continuing Studies in 2013.
I enjoy making art. I am always energized and amazed at what can be created from a blank piece of paper or canvas. The process, the transformation from idea to art, that's what I love.
Although I use a variety of art media, I concentrate on water media, specifically watercolor, acrylic and casein. My work explores the themes of nature, architecture and the human form. I enjoy using paint to express the abstract forms found in representational images. My subject matter becomes the framework within which she plays with value, shape and color.
