Kathryn Clark was born in 1954 in LaGrange, Georgia. As is the story of most artists, she developed her love of art at a very early age. However, an art career was not supported by her parents and she put her passion of drawing and painting on hold for many years.
Kathryn earned a Bachelor of Organization Leadership degree from Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia, and an ABA approved paralegal certificate from The National Center for Paralegal Studies in Atlanta, Georgia. For more than 25 years, Kathryn has worked in the legal field and currently works as a senior level commercial real estate paralegal, but she never forgot her childhood passion of pursuing a career in art. In 2007, Kathryn submitted a digital portfolio of self-taught work to The Savannah College of Art & Design. As a result, she was not only accepted as an incoming freshman, but was also awarded an annual $15,000.00 combined academic and artistic scholarship from SCAD/Atlanta, where she has studied Illustration, Drawing, Painting, Color Theory, Pastels, Portraiture, woodworking, wire art, 2-D and 3-D Art, collage and computer art.
In August 2008, Kathryn moved back to her hometown of LaGrange, Georgia, where she began working on a series of paintings in the watercolor, acrylic and oil media, preferring the spontaneity and immediate results of watercolor, the brilliance and beauty of acrylics and the ease of painting in oil. Her spontaneous style offers a fresh interpretation of familiar subjects. Kathryn creates her own supports from select pine and masonite hardboard and is currently working on a series of paintings of dancers and ballerinas in oil and acrylic.
Kathryn believes that painting is an incredible way to express ourselves and is a great tool to relieve stress.
