"I'm a serious artist that doesn't feel that art should be serious. Bright reds and yellows; circles, flowers, music; bold, bright & happy. These are the things that inspire my art."
Athough being trained in commercial art at Milwaukee Area Technical College, Kathy learned most of her painting skills, and was challenged most by, her high school art teacher Ms. Palubicki. Here's a big shout out to Ms. Palubicki!
Kathy’s entire career was in home decor design creating products for companies such as Kohl’s, Walmart, the NFL, McDonalds and Bed Bath & Beyond.
Kathy designs all the graphics and labels for Studio's wines and Geneva Lake Distilling's Diving Girl Series of labels. She took best of class in 2017 at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine competition for Studio's Musician Series of wine label designs. In 2014, she won a Silver Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition for the same series of labels.
In addition to all the paintings that adorn our tasting room, Kathy also makes all of our jewelry & our fused glass items.
She is often seen painting to the music on Saturday late afternoons, or guiding our Art Crafting classes.
Prints of much of Kathy's artwork are available for purchase as well as a few of the originals.
