About The Artist
Kathleen Lipinski has worked with Marin landscape in painting and printmaking for 40 years. Her art combines a love of nature with her dedication to realism, attention to detail, and the ability to capture the quality of light.
Her oil paintings range in size from postcard-sized to canvases as large as 14 feet wide. Limited edition giclée prints are created from her original oil paintings which capture the color and detail of her unique style in signed and numbered works on paper.
Kathleen’s work has been featured at Marin/Scapes and the Sausalito Art Festival annually for 25 years and has appeared on the cover of Marin Magazine. Kathleen & her husband, artist Steve Emery, live in San Anselmo and are the 2015 recipients of the Marin Cultural Treasure Award. Studio visits are welcome by appointment.
