"Capturing the emotional impact of light and color is the essence of painting for me. As I view a scene that has attracted my attention, this is what I want to convey to a viewer of my paintings – color and light – thought and feeling become strong strokesof pure pigment applied in an impressionistic style. At other times, I let it simmer and build over a period of time, until I feel compelled to share it with the world – the starting point may be as simple as the azaleas blooming in a yard, or the sunset light over a marsh, but with a dash of mystery in night scenes over the blue mountains of North Carolina.
Each time I create a landscape, it is like a child to me – blooming from childhood into an adult drawing on the rich tapestry of experience and learning of the world around us." -Kathryn Wilson Kathryn currently lives in North Raleigh having been a resident there for 23 years.
