artma Artists

Artist: Kathy Friesz

I am an intuitive painter. I make a mark and respond. My paintings take on a form in a dance between myself and the image that evolves. Drawing with graphite and the brush is my starting point. I then respond with color, adding more linear marks with oil pastels, more graphite, and use a dry brush technique as I progress. My work is ethereal and speaks of portals, places and spaces beyond. A Colorao native, Kathy obtained her formal education from The Colorado Institute of Art.

Kathy has been awarded several times in her professional art career including First Place 2016 at the Golden Fine Art Show. Kathy's exhibitions include NCAR Boulder 2017, Artists on Santa Fe 2019.
