Kathy Friedline

Kathy Friedline was born and raised in the hills of West Virginia and grew up with a love of nature, especially animals, that is often reflected in her artwork.  “My fascination with art has always been that with a  brush and some paint, I can capture a moment in time.  I like the intimacy of everyday moments that are familiar and comfortable.  For so many of us, animals play an important role in those moments.”

Kathy works in acrylics, pen & ink, and watercolor.  She is an active member of the Mobile Art Association, Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile, the Artist Figure Group, and the Mama Lisas.  In 2008, she curated “Pears& Chairs, a themed art show, at the West Regional Library.  She helps with coordinating  the “The Art of Reading” exhibit  for  the Mobile Public Library.  In October 2010, she and Joanne Brandt featured their  animal art in “All Critters Great & Small” at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer.  Kathy's  interactive environmental murals can be found in local elementary schools.  She continues to create her ‘Porch Dog’ series and recently discovered the joy of keeping an art journal.
