My name is Kathy Pare. Royal Oak has been my home for the past 18 years. As a new member of the South Oakland Art Association SOAA, I enjoy the camaraderie of the paint-togethers.
Some of my fondest memories are of drawing for hours at the picnic table with the neighborhood kids. As a young girl I was inspired by my Grandmother who painted in oils.
I always had an interest in art. In 1974, I obtained an Associates Degree in Advertising Design and had a career in Graphic Arts. I took many painting classes for personal enjoyment.
Much of my work is in watercolors and acrylics and is inspired by flowers, nature and bright colors.
