Notes: Kathleen Kemly: "Wherever I go, my sketchbook is always close at hand. People are endlessly fascinating subjects -- in coffee shops, airports, on the bus or standing in line ... In the studio, my sketches are a springboard for paintings. As a painter, form, color and narrative are what interest me. Using acrylics and various scrounged bits of paper, I find my way into the painting by switching back and forth between painting and collage. The artists I continually turn to for inspiration are Pierre Bonnard, Richard Deibenkorn and David Hockney ... I received my BFA at Parsons School of Design in NYC and have continued my education at the Gage Academy in Seattle. My work includes illustrating many award-winning Children's Books; most recently, Molly, By Golly!"
