Light of the Caribbean Artist
Kathleen Stark has studied art at The Corcoran School of Art and Design, The University of Hawaii and Northern Virginia Community College. She also took private lessons in Athens, Greece. She has also studied art history and was a docent at The Corcoran Gallery Of Art for 18 years. Stark's experiences living in many different places such as Liberia, West Africa, Athens Greece and Frankfurt, Germany are the subjects and inspiration for many of her paintings. Other inspiration comes from women's social issues and her spiritual beliefs.
My artwork is both personal and emotional with a little bit of quirky. It speaks to the things that are important to me personally and politically. It is sometimes used to work out the demons that attack once in a while. I use layers and mixed media and intense colors to convey my feelings. Painting is my joy and my obsession. I cannot live and not paint. If my painting speaks to the viewer something of this, then I am happy.
