Kathy Miller has been a professional artist for over 30 years exploring many different media. She paints realistic landscapes in oil, which are easily recognizable by their billowing, floating clouds that have a luminous quality. Painting with watercolor offers Kathy an entirely different approach to art. Her watercolors emphasize sunlight, color and design. Unlike her realistic oil paintings, her work in watercolor is often whimsical, moving easily between reality and fantasy. Kathy's first step in creating an etching is to etch the design into a zinc plate with nitric acid. There are many steps in the process, but it ends by inking the plate, printing it on her press on handmade paper and hand coloring each print.
