After thirty years in San Francisco, Mill Valley and Sonoma, Kathleen Elsey relocated to Santa Barbara in 2003. Her paintings include back-road landscapes, beach scenes and paintings of interiors of interesting old rooms. In the past 2 years, her works have exhibited in the Albuquerque Museum, Taos’ Millicent Rogers Museum, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, Bakersfield Museum and the Salmagundi Gallery in New York City. She is represented by galleries in Chicago, Nashville and Santa Barbara, California. Kathleen Elsey teaches “Brush with Life” painting workshops in California, New Mexico, New York, Wisconsin and Ohio.
“I am a contemporary American painter focusing on interior scape, still life and landscape. My colors are intensified and spontaneous in my hopes for a painting full of spirit. Often I make up the colors in my paintings. I try to hit the values in the range they should be, but with color, I think anything goes. I like to experiment with planes and their relationships to each other, especially on my larger canvases. With big brushes I make swift rough strokes using blocks of color beside each other until an image emerges, especially when painting a multitude of figures like in "At the Beach, Brighton" and "Parade.”
