By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by American landscape painter Kathie Odom (born 1959 in Tennessee, USA).
 

Kathie was born, raised and educated in Tennessee. She rode bikes and walked to school as a suburban kid in the 1960’s. And in the 1970’s, Kathie’s high school art teacher offered her a vision that still lives on today.

 

After graduating from the University of Tennessee in Art Education and Fine Arts, Kathie received early recognition for pastel works in the 1982. But it was 2009 when plein-air painting sent her flying, setting her on course for a career as an oil painter.

 

Kathie resides with her husband in north Knoxville where she also maintains a studio. She proudly paints weekly outdoors with an enthusiastic community of artists and travels extensively participating in plein air events and teaching plein air workshops. Her original works can be seen in some of the finest galleries in the south. Kathie has sold internationally and has received several awards and honors.

            ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"Beauty and creativity connect me with God. When I am building oils onto a canvas, something is happening within me that cannot be explained with the word connection. With Him I begin to paint from my gut, even from my toenails!"
