Art has been a life long exploration and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to paint as a professional artist. My recent focus in art has been on oil paintings of the California landscape. As urban sprawl takes away more of the unique and open landscape, I am intriqued by capturing the natural settings that remain as well as the interesting interplay at the intersections of nature and urbanization.
Kathleen McMahon has had a lifetime of involvement with art, working in painting medias, ceramics, stained glass and wood craft. She has taught art to developmentally challenged children and adults.
She is now a landscape painter focused in oils, painting on location in and around the Bay Area of Northern California and wherever she travels. In most cases, she completes a painting on location in one session. Other paintings are done entirely in the studio. She uses oils and works in an impressionistic style, influenced by past and current California landscape painters.
Having a strong business background with the Internet, Kathleen participates in many online communities and organizations for professional artists, is founder of CraftWEB.com, and author of the book, "In Search of Arts & Crafts on the Internet".
She is a member of the American Impressionist Society (AIS) and former President of the San Francisco Women Artists Association, a non-profit 200+ member organization.
