She became manager of engineering projects concerned with naval combat warfare systems. Concurrently, she obtained her M.A. in International Studies, completing her work at Oxford University. After 20 years in government contracting Kathy decided to go back to two of her true loves - creating paintings of animals, and riding and training her horses. Over the past 15 years, her painting style has changed, but her subjects remain the same. She has been recognized by museums that are animal oriented - she has had shows at those museums and now has paintings in their permanent collections.

Wyatt Jr., Norman


Search for products by this Artist >>

Norman has always been passionate about art.  He has been an artist since he was a very young child, and went on to attend Virginia State University earning a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications, Art and Design.  Much of his inspiration is drawn from early careers such as working at an African-inspired gift shop and teaching elementary art.  These experiences have made his work rich in color, texture, and dimension.  He believes as an artist he must capture and absorb all that surrounds him and later resurrect these subconscious thoughts on canvas or paper, with pen or brush.
