Artist Profiles » Kathy Watson

Kathy WatsonSketching, painting and sailing have been the three passions of this artist since childhood.

Kathy entered Whitecliffe Art School, Auckland in mid-life after some 20 years raising a family, and a career in the medical field. She went on to complete a Fine Art Diploma at Whitecliffe Art School in 1990/91. Kathy now paints in her own studio in Devonport, Auckland.

Kathy and her husband renovated and now sails the traditional kauri yacht "Gayleen" on Auckland's Hauraki Gulf. Kathy loves to sketch for her studio paintings while sailing.

In the last ten years Kathy has travelled widely, visiting major art centres in the U.S.A, Europe, and Asia, as well as throughout New Zealand. Kathy’s latest series of French images are inspired by three visits to France in recent years.

Kathy paints in a variety of media, including oils and acrylics on canvas, watercolour and gouache. She was a finalist in the Telecom Art Awards 1992, a finalist in the North Shore City National Art Award 1994 and has had work accepted for same nearly every year since. NZ Sugar Company Award - North Shore City Art Awards 1995 and 1998, Merit Award 2003 and the Oil Painting Award, Mairangi Arts Centre Members Exhibition 2004
