In preparation for a painting Kathyrn takes meaningful images from photographs of landscapes and atmospheres augmenting and enlarging portions of them as if they were being looked at under a microscope.  Dreams of completed paintings; memories and obsessions in her life are processed before her stories come to life on the canvas.  Objects such as metal, glass, wood, beads, weeds, flower petals, string, bubble wrap, magazine advertisements and custom paper are compulsively saved then secured or woven into the canvas. These objects of attraction become part of the reasoning and existential purpose behind the painting - the symbol of the obsession. The artist often makes her acrylic paint from scratch thickening and thinning, offering the viewer a desire to taste or feel the painting to see if it is real.
