Kathy Lull – Artist’s Bio

Kathy Lull is a multiple media artist working in a wide variety of mediums including painting, fabric, glass, jewelry and sculpture. Vibrant color, texture, layering and geometric design are all used to produce a feeling of vibrance, aliveness, to capture a spirit of place. Major influences include the Northwest landscape, Impressionism, Cubism and Surrealism.

Kathy has ‘Artistic A.D.D.’ often switching between 2-D and 3-D. Painting mediums include oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor. 3-D projects include glass mosaics, metal clay jewelry and welded steel sculpture.

Her process is usually experimental, in sort of a mad-scientist way, combining different mediums and hoping for happy accidents to occur. But… if paintings do not work out as planned, they can be cut up and recycled into new paintings. So really there are no failures.

Kathy lives on Whidbey Island, WA. Summers are spent exploring and painting the wild areas of the Northwest. Winters in the studio teaching, painting, creating jewelry and sculpture. She has studied at the Art Institute in Chicago and with local painting masters Richard McKinley, Bob Burridges and Ned Muller.
