Artist of the Month: Katherine Hiscox

I have lived my adult life on Long Island and have been inspired by the meadows, wetlands, harbors, beaches, gardens, and the people. I choose subjects that appeal to my senses and my work has been described as poetic.  My preferred medium is watercolor because of its qualities of spontaneity, transparency and its ability to show precise detail.

 I have degrees in art education and art therapy and have taught adolescents and given watercolor workshops to adults.  I am active in the art community on Long Island and participate in juried exhibitions and local shows.  I have taken awards of best in show and honorable mentions in some of these shows.  I have also participated in two invitational exhibits that have focused on singular and unique trees.  The Old Magnolia Tree is a painting of a tree that lives in Planting Fields Arboretum. My paintings can be found in homes around the country and as far afield as France and Israel.

 The best part of being an artist is that I can stop to fully explore and describe an experience, and then be able to share that with the viewer.
