CAA ARTIST MEMBER EXHIBITION
Kathleen Broaderick is an artist based on the beautiful Emerald Coast of Florida. She started painting during her last semester at FSU when she filled an extra slot in her schedule with a watercolor class. She has been a student of art ever since.
While living in England, Chicago and Stuart, FL she took art classes & workshops whenever she could. After moving to the Emerald Coast in 2000, she was introduced to oil painting. During this time, Kathleen was an art volunteer at Plew Elementary for 10 years while her sons attended the school. She then became certified to teach art and elementary education and taught kindergarten and art at Edge Elementary in Niceville.
Now, a full-time artist, she wakes up early to paint or walk on the beach for inspiration. “If I am not painting I am cooking. My family and I love to eat.“
Instead of perfectly representing exact details and color of her subject, Kathleen paints to capture an impression and evoke deep and true emotions from within the viewer. CHROMA Studio & Gallery allows her to combine her art studio and love of teaching in one place. Kathleen is honored to have been named Visit South Walton’s 2018 Artist of the Year.
