Kathryn Leeson Kight

Kathryn Leeson-Kight showed artistic promise as a teenager in England but rather than follow a formal art career decided to pursue other avenues. Architecture and a career as an Interior Designer allowed her to explore architectural illustration, which led back after a 30 year gap to herfirst love of fine art. She now combines illustration and fine art to her independent interior design business.  She is a largely a self-taught artist who occasionally attends art classes and workshops given by artists locally and further afield.Her degree in Architectural Interior Design provided formal training in technical drawing.

Her artistic aspirations are to paint watercolors which portray in paint the strong contrasts between nature andbuilt form which enhance both. The colors and sunlight of south Texas inspire her to explore the theme of reflected light and shade in contrasting relationships.

Her work has shown in various shows in the local area. She is the 2011 Gift artist for the Rockport Tour of Homes. Her work is represented in galleries in Corpus Christi, Rockport and Port Aransas.

Kathryn can be contacted by phone or email. Commissions for house or boat portraiture are welcomed.
