Kathy Lieb is an abstract artist working in acrylics and mixed media. She grew up in Philadelphia before moving to the suburbs. At times, the grit of the city finds its way into her work. She works intuitively, without a preconceived notion of where the painting will go. Joan Didion wrote “I write to see what I’m thinking.” Kathy’s philosophy is “I paint to see what I’m feeling.” It becomes a conversation with the canvas, teaching her to slow down and listen to what should come next. Her paintings are gestural and painterly, with an emphasis on mark making. Her process involves layering, scratching, dragging and dripping paint across the canvas until the meaning is revealed.
Kathy is an art teacher by day, sharing the joy of creativity and self expression with her elementary school students. She hopes to inspire her students with her passion for art. In her free time, she pursues her own creativity and has taken classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Fleisher Art Memorial. She has been taking classes at Fleisher for the past 25 years. She has shown her work in Fleisher’s gallery, and won an award for abstract painting.
The connections between the painting process and life never cease to amaze her. Painting has taught her lessons on overcoming fear, letting go, taking chances, and being in the moment. It has also taught her that it’s never too late to do what you love.
