Kathie Milligan Landscape Painter 203-322-5511
My artwork involves the many facets of landscape and how it relates to my life, interests and surroundings. I’ve painted in all seasons, recording patterns of land and water at my feet and rhythms of branches rising majestically above my head. I cross the line between representation and abstraction, employing the interaction of shapes and the use of color, light and rhythm to convey my feelings about the forces of nature and how they relate to me. I find excitement in the power of rebirth; of nature’s magical ability to create new life and renewed hope. We, the gardeners, are a conduit of this rebirth and I paint myself and other tillers to celebrate this magnificent orchestration.
I received my MFA in painting in spring, 2007 from the New York Studio School in Manhattan and my undergraduate degree in studio art is from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. I’ve lived in both the United States and London., England and have shown work internationally. I am a multi-media artist concentrating on drawing and painting. Presently my time is divided between teaching and landscape painting.
