Kathy Lee Kathy is a self-taught visual and abstract expressionist artist. Her love for art started as a teenager, and she eventually took up painting a few years later. Appreciating the art of such greats as Jackson Pollack and Wassily Kandinsky, she realized that abstract art was where she wanted to focus and take her creativity. Wanting to use abstract art as an expressive and emotional outlet, it quickly became a passion for her. She loves using color to represent energy and emotions. Kathy believes surrounding herself is love, positivity, passion, and music will help convey those emotions into her art. Although she has southern roots, she now calls Chicagoland home. In addition to art, she has a passion for working with animals.
