Impressionistic Landscapes

Kathy Fediw - Biography

Kathy Fediw paints in an impressionistic style in both oils and pastels. Her paintings are filled with movement and impasto and although she paints many different subjects, she prefers landscapes and skyscapes. Kathy’s work is strongly influenced by the impressionists and post-impressionists, especially Renoir, Sargent and Van Gogh. She experiments and plays with color, giving her paintings an unforgettable glow. She enjoys painting en plein air and can be found doing demos at various local outdoor events and artists' gatherings.

Kathy won Best of Show in her first judged art show in 2013, and has since won numerous awards for her artwork. She studied watercolor painting under Mary Lois Virrella while living in her home town of Pittsburgh, PA. She moved to Texas in 1999 and just started painting in pastels in 2012, studying under Ann Lohmann.

She began working in oils in 2013 under the mentorship and tutelage of Marty Hatcher, former student of Dick Turner in Houston. She has also taken workshops with abstract pastelist Jane Shoenfeld, BFA, MA, LPAT, of Santa Fe, NM; Master Pastelist Michael Chesley Johnson, MPA, PSA, PSNM in Sedona, AZ; Rita Kirkman; Patsy Lindamood; Enid Wood; Linda Dellandre, and other artists.

Kathy is a well-known professional horticulturist and writer with numerous professional accreditations, and her intimate knowledge of plants and trees are evident in her artwork. Kathy exhibits and sells her paintings through the Conroe Art League Gallery, Woodlands Art League Gallery, her own art studio and online. Kathy can often be found sketching in pastels or watercolor while walking around The Woodlands, where she and her husband Ted make their home.
