"Early on in my career I gained a great desire to participate in The Forgotten Coast! I had only been participating in plein air events for one year before my husband and I traveled to Apalachicola for the 2014 quickdraw. Since then I have hoped for this day to come... and I couldn't be more thrilled to paint in such an important and highly respected event!"
After graduating from the University of Tennessee in Art Education and Fine Arts, Kathie received early recognition for pastel works. But it was 2009 when she found a home in painting oils en plein air.
I call myself a "Nostalgic Impressionist" as a way of identifying the subjects and style of painting that interest me most. Also I am really passionate about plein air painting and allow myself to get lost in the wonderful process of it all!
Kathie resides with her husband and maintains a studio in Knoxville, Tennessee. She travels extensively and spends much of her time oil painting in the great outdoors. Also teaching workshops and participating in plein air events occupies much of her calendar. Most recently she received Best in Show from the Olmsted Plein Air Invitational in Atlanta (Spring 2018). Kathie's original works have sold internationally and she is quite proud of her fine art gallery representation. Find out more about Kathie and see her work at https://www.kathieodom.com
