Kathleen Lack

Novato, CA

Figures are my inspiration. Painting life is an energizing & spontaneous event for me. Color is my passion. I love the never-ending search for exciting and compelling colors. Emotion is my glue. I'm drawn to capturing the emotional spontaneity before me, and the beauty of the human form.

Kathleen Lack, an award winning artist & teacher, works in oils and pastels, specializing in the portrait & the figure. She has garnered many family portrait commissions with up to 8 people in a single portrait. As with her portraits and figurative work, the body language and environment is informal, relaxed and fluid: kids playing at the beach, climbing trees, observing nature; people being themselves. Her work includes paintings of "The Ballet"; a Western theme entitled "Boots, Hats, & Horses"; "Musicians"; & "Figuratives". Kathleen is represented by and/or associated with Lyons Head Gallery in Carmel Valley; Gallery One in Petaluma, Portrait Society of America; Oil Painters of America; Musings Fine Art; and Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Novato.
