"I see the world and I paint it" Kathy Best
Kathy creates bold, expressive acrylic abstracts and contemporary paintings based on observation of the world around her. The works are predominately based on the present landscape and landscapes observed while travelling. She sometimes paints loosely from reference photos or memory. Other times she lets the paint and marks on the canvas guide her. Kathy’s works explore colour relationships, impasto texture, movement, shapes and layers.
Kathy has been painting consistently since 2008 under the guidance of many tutors. She is continuously learning and thinking of new ideas.
“Take a look, take a 2nd look and take a longer look – I love putting my work out there.” Kathy Best

I have been painting consistently with my local art group since around 2008 under the guidance of many tutors. I also attend multiple weekly tutored classes and full day workshops where I continuously learn and think of new ideas. In 2019 I completed my Certificate III in Visual Arts and in 2021 I commenced my Certificate IV in Visual Arts at Box Hill Institute.
