Kathy Baker Mackey

: Visual Artist

Artist Overview

A self-taught artist and a late bloomer, I began painting in mid-life, while attending college. My field of study was demanding, painting became my creative outlet and a way to relieve stress.
I fell in love with the feel of the brush and paint as it flowed on the canvas.

I have been blessed to study and attend visual arts workshops with local artists, Niki Gulley, Nancy Medina and Laurie Pace and New York artist, Henry Finkelstein.

With the most important roles in my life, wife, mother and grandmother, I was a “early bloomer.” However, there are many joys in being a late bloomer, one of mine is painting.

God has richly blessed me. I sing His praises through brush strokes and color.

Lush, thick, puddles of color…
An idea…
Music…
That’s how it starts; then a story evolves…
I’m just the instrument used to tell the story.
There is suspense and mystery until the very last brush stroke is applied!

My hope is that my paintings bring conversation, joy and happiness into the world.
