Kathy Sievering

Kathy Sievering leaned on art to help her cope. At the age of five, she lost her father. Years of feeling frozen thawed when her third-grade teacher noticed her creative side. He asked her to help him decorate bulletin boards. Her art teacher also noticed her artistic skills. Kathy’s Halloween paintings were chosen twice to be painted on local storefront windows. She drew constantly, often being asked to “pay attention,” when doodling in school. Kathy drew because it made her feel happy and helped her express herself. After forty plus years as a school psychologist and two failed attempts to retire Kathy is ready to
commit to art. She wants to focus on the positive qualities of life. All her paintings emerge
from strong feelings. Kathy decided to “paint with a purpose” several years ago. Many of her paintings are expressions of intense feelings, and a desire to make the world a better place. Instead of dwelling on the darkness and issues that are beyond her control, Kathy focuses on beauty, hope, love, and all that is good. Know that every one of her paintings is painted with intention. Kathy looks hard to find the beauty and goodness in all that surrounds her. Her mentor and friend, Anne Gifford taught her watercolor techniques. Kathy is very grateful for Anne’s guidance, talent, and inspiration.
