Kathy O’Leary began painting while studying art in college. The impact of California’s scenery has inspired her to paint what she witnesses. She enjoys the process of painting, but her true motivation is nature. She loves being outdoors and loves painting, especially California landscapes.

O’Leary’s images of the peaceful, tranquil environs of the North Coast area of California create an atmosphere with the surrounding space. There is a strong emphasis on space in her images that persuades one to care less about trees, the mountain ranges, or golden fields of grass, and more about the breeze between them that you don’t see. The effect of space goes beyond simple painting techniques, but gives her work a unique transcendental quality.
