|The Month of January we are featuring the art work of Kathleen Grant Studios|
Kathleen Grant grew up in Stamford, Connecticut. Her love for art started at a young age. After taking numerous art classes in high school she then attended Johnson State College to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.
Kathleen then found her calling; she wanted to share her love and enthusiasm of art through teaching. At the age of 27 she became a K-8 art teacher. Kathleen found while she worked with the children, they were bringing more inspiration to her art.
After teaching for thirty years Kathleen has retired from her teaching career to work as a full time artist and jewelry designer. She resides in the beautiful Green Mountains of Shelburne, Vermont with her husband, Doug, two cats (Alma and Rose) and a puppy Willy. She also has three beautiful adult children of her own, Ashley, Kaitlyn and Nicholas.
As an artist, she finds there are no boundaries when sticking to a specific artistic medium.
In her paintings, of media including; water colors, pen, oil sticks, and acrylic paint, Kathleen loves to create; she also loves to share her passion, and hopes to inspire her viewers, peers, students, friends, and family through her art, pencils and ink sticks.
Kathleen's jewelry designs specialize in wirework and cold connections (a technique that does not involve the use of heat or flame). She loves to make jewelry with Lake Champlain and Cape Code beach stones. She also has a passion for upcycling trinkets and vintage treasures to create unique, wearable art.
Clay also fits into Kathleen's eclectic art, mainly focusing on hand building. She enjoys making function pieces including bowls, platters, vases and garden art.
