About Kathleen

Kathleen grew up on Barbados in the West Indies and was encouraged to make art at an early age. She studied different textiles techniques at secondary school, including batik, dying and stenciling, and silk painting. She also received accreditation for her creative skills in a variety of media, including painting and photography, upon completion of the CAPE (Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations).

Kathleen moved to California in 2007 to continue her education in art and received two BFA degrees in Pictorial Art and Photography. She began working for non-profit organizations, such as MACLA & EdventureMore, educating and inspiring creativity in youth of varying ages at after school programs and summer camps. Kathleen started teaching at Rainbow Art studio in 2012, and it was this experience that showed her fulfillment when students achieved their creative and academic endeavors.

Kathleen recently graduated from the Master of Fine Arts program at San Jose State University. Here, she taught a beginning darkroom class that explored traditional Gelatin Silver printing methods, an intermediate level class that explores alternative 19th photographic processes, and she is currently teaching a beginning digital photography course.

Kathleen also maintains her studio practice and has exhibited in galleries in and out of state, such as Linus Galleries, and the De Young Museum. She hopes to continue to inspire creativity in her students.

Skilled in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Illustrator; Art Fundaments and Pictorial subjects such as Intaglio, Monotype, Lithography, Oil Painting; digital, analogue, and alternative photography; textile techniques such as batik, silk painting and tub dyeing.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I am trained in colour correction, editing photographs, and general retouching, as well as design work in Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

Painting

I have an undergraduate degree in Pictorial Art. My emphasis was in painting and printmaking. My BFA Pictorial exhibition included many oil and watercolor paintings. During my graduate career I have been fortunate to teach art at a private art school where we cover the fundamentals of art including painting with materials such as acrylic, gouache and watercolor.

Photography

I have taught photography to ages ranging from seven to adult. I have taught digital photography and Photoshop to middle and high school students; digital photography to middle school students; and three semesters in the photography department at a University in the subjects of Beginning Darkroom Photography, Beginning Digital Photography and Alternative Photographic Processes (a specialized course looking at 18th-century photographic processes).
