“As a human and spiritual being fortunate enough to live in Sedona, Arizona, I am continually blessed and inspired by the incredible beauty of the red rock landscape and brilliant blue sky in this sacred land…. As a visionary artist I try to capture that mystical & sacred quality in my work, not only through the dramatic use of light & color, but also through the feeling, energy and beauty of this sacred space…”
Born in the rich farmland of SE Pennsylvania (“Amish Country”), Kathie always felt a strong connection to the natural world. Painting and color were her first love but the gift of creativity has led her to explore many different styles and mediums over the years. Starting with studying Fine Arts at Philadelphia College of Art and continuing on with graphics, jewelry fabrication & design at Millersville University.
In addition to her formal art training, over the years Kathie has worked and studied with Native teachers and elders from many different traditions, including participating in ceremonies from the east to the west coast of the US…from Canada to sacred sites in Mexico. Having been blessed to learn Reiki & various other forms of energy work, she has incorporated them into her art which has led to her own unique style of sacred spiritual and visionary art.
Along with creating one-of-a-kind sacred feather fans, purses & shamanic shields painted on deerhide she still enjoys working with color by painting on canvas. Her original Sedona Deck & Oracle© (now in it’s third printing) features artwork about Sedona and is another creation directed from Spirit. Kathie was led to Sedona in the mid 90’s and currently shares a home and studio at the base of Thunder Mountain in Sedona, AZ, with her grown artist children. She never tires of the red rock views and loves working in her garden when she is not working in her studio.
