Kathy grew up in a working class family in rural upstate
New York. Like most photographers, has always been
interested in the magic of the medium. She majored in art
in high school as well as college. Although earning a
degree in art education, Kathy became involved in the
entertainment industry after moving to Los Angeles.
She settled into the Art Department as a Set Decorator,
and worked for over 30 years in this capacity, in
commercials, music videos, independent films, and
eventually, television series. She garnered an Emmy
Nomination in 2001 for her work on the CBS series
“Judging Amy”, and finished her career by retiring from
ABC’s “Criminal Minds”.
Since retiring, Kathy has pursued photography full time.
She and her husband purchased a home on the central
coast where the natural surroundings are a perfect subject
for her photography. Using the the natural beauty of the
area she has created a series of images using simple
landscapes with vivid moons against a black sky.
