I’m Kathleen Mapson. As an artist, I am led by color, texture, and composition. But my creative process comes from something a bit deeper, an unexplainable place of peace that encompasses my intuition, images and sounds, joys and pains, and the experiences that shape my life and others. The blending of these things guide the movement of my hands and inspire me to create something that does not exist - paintings that are richly layered with texture, depth of color, beautiful rhythm, and meaning. I want my paintings to evoke feeling, set the mood of a space, serve as a conversation piece, and add style.
A FEW TIDBITS
I discovered my gift of drawing in the 3rd grade while working on a mural for my elementary school play.
Growing up, I drew plans to help my dad build or repair small projects around our home.
As a child and even ‘til today, I redesign and upholster antiques and current furnishings with my mom when I’m home.
My background is Engineering Graphics & 3D Modeling. But my undergrad pottery class was one of my favorites. #AggiePride
