Call Me Crazy......

Kathleen Ford's avatar Kathleen Ford

My work is watercolor collage with hand-made paper. I like to work on wood and use encaustic wax to protect painting. It creates an unusual depth to the colors and enhances the textures of the different papers I use. This year I created a grid of twelve 12" x 12" portraits of cat faces. The intensity of their gaze and the scope of their expressions intrigue me. They seem to be able to capture a variety of human emotions.
