About the Artist: Kathy Pitts

Kathy Pitts is from Irving, Texas. She grew up watching her mother paint. A gifted oil painter, Kathy’s mother inspired her creativity. In school, she took classes in art, creative writing, and photography, all of which she applied throughout her extensive travels.

She lived and worked in Dahlgren, Virginia at the Naval Surface Warfare Center for many years while raising her two sons. During that period she made time to continue her creative classes.

Kathy moved to Marathon, Florida where she lived for 10 inspirational years. While living the Keys lifestyle, that magical time enabled her to capture the natural beauty of the tropics in the thousands of photos that covered her walls.

In 2004 Kathy moved to Hobe Sound and was ready to move on to a new challenge. She saw Carol Kepp’s artwork in a local art store and contacted her about taking her painting class. With Carol’s expert guidance, she drew out Kathy’s talents and today she is an accomplished painter. Her tropical paintings have replaced the many photos that used to decorate her home.

Kathy was just 19 when her mother died. She has come full circle from watching her mother paint to becoming an artist herself. Her mother’s legacy lives on through Kathy.
