As  a  painter,  Katherine  Kean seeks moments of
breath-taking  transition  in  nature;  a  gathering of
clouds or changing tides;  times  when  the  elements
of  the  landscape  combine  with  the  alchemy  of
imagination to illuminate the world of heightened
mood  and  sensation.   Her works capture these
fleeting  moments  in  time  and  reveal  the  serene
center  that  can  arise  in  the  mids t of  nature’s
turbulence.

Katherine has exhibited in museums and galleries
across the United States, including the LACMA Art
Rental and Sales Gallery and the Brand Library Art
Gallery in Los Angeles. Her work was selected for
inclusion  in  the  2009  Schiffer  publication  
100
Artists of the West Coast II
, and she has three times
won an  Art Slant  Showcase Award.  Her work is in
many   private   and   corporate   collections   and
Bloomingdales   recently   selected   one   of  her
cloudscape paintings to be part of the collection for
their new store in Santa Monica, CA.
