BEHIND THE BRUSH
Kathy Gavin lives in Elliott Bay near Sandpoint, Idaho. Her studio over looks the beautiful
lake Pend d' Oreille and the Monarch Mountains. This is where her inspiration starts. The views from her studio are ever changing, not only from day to day but sometimes minute to minute!
She has had the fortunate experience of living for extended periods in Europe, Australia and Hawaii. An avid traveler, she has studied original paintings by many of the great artists. Her greatest influence has come from the Impressionistic era paintings of Monet, Degas, Renoir, Toulouse Lautrec, and Van Gogh.
Kathy worked as a nurse and nurse practitioner most of her life. She owned and operated her own medical clinic and medical spa. She started painting part time in 2004 while she continued to work in the medical field. In 2012 she retired from her successful medical career to paint full time.
She has studied under Elaine Amsterdam Farley, Jean Chambers, Glen Grishkoff, Ron Hicks, Mike Malm, Albin Veselka and Daniel Edmondson. It has been under the study of Daniel Edmondson that her paintings have come to life!!
She has collectors in Washington, Idaho, California, Switzerland, Holland. I hope you enjoy the website and become a collector yourself!
