Huebener, Kathleen
                  “Art is a journey” believes Kathleen.  Knowledge is growing in day-to-day painting, by discovering,                   sometimes accidentally, new ways to capture light, texture and depth.  Incorporating this new                   knowledge into her work makes Kathleen exclaim, “The pleasure of creating just keeps getting better                   and better!”  A daily painting regimen is the means by which an artist turns from a tyro to a virtuoso.
