Pennsylvania, whose works have been described as expressive,
brave and Hey, lady, whats this supposed
After escaping a successful career in professional advertising,
she became one of Pittsburghs most recognized painters. Kit
is a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Soociety of Illustrators and is a founding
member ofWaterclors Gallery and the Pittsburgh Underwater Group.
She takes pleasure in being active in the arts community and in
the fact that her works are displayed in many
galleries and homes. Kit has paintings
at World West Gallery in Washington, PA; ARTBEAT Gallery in Waynesburg, PA, and 3G Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA.
A Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Tennessee with
a double major in both design and painting, Kit lives on a farm
in Pennsylvanias Laurel Highlands with her husband, two dogs
and various wild creatures. It is a place of inspiration and endless
subjects, many of which can be seen in her work.
I love the process of putting down what I see, of finding
the poetry of place, says Kit. My favorite creations
are those which tell a story, making the viewer want to study them
and enjoy his/her own interpretation.

friend and famous watercolor painter, Ron Thurston. See more of
