Art classes were not offered in her school when Kathie George was a child. So, she did not take a formal art class until after she was married - when her husband Michael signed her up for a college class as a surprise. Little did he know what he was in for! That art class changed their lives forever. From that moment on, any leisure time she could find was spent painting. In 1985, she quit her job and begin to devote all of her time to her new career. A talented artist, as well as a much-sought-after workshop instructor, Kathie now resides in Kettering, OH. Her work is primarily watermedia or collage, but she is best known for her "watercolor batik on rice paper" work. Kathie is known for her friendly, informative and energetic approach to teaching. Her students say "she has the ability to know what a student needs and then show them how to get there." No doubt this may one reason students return to her workshops over and over again. Kathie has twice been a finalist in Artist Magazine's Art Competition (among 14,000 entrants) and her award winning work has appeared in numerous magazines, such as Artist Magazine, Watercolor Artist, American Artist to name a few. She has also been featured in the Northlight Publication Splash, editions 11-15 and Splash Retrospective - 20 years of Contemporary Watercolor Excellence. She's a signature member of both the Ohio and Florida Watercolor Societies.
