    Meet Kathy Durdin

    After a successful career in management consulting, Kathy has honed her watercolor and drawing skills, exhibiting across Florida as well as nationally, and teaching both classes and workshops.  Kathy has always loved watercolor as a medium ­ while it is very unforgiving, its freshness cannot be replicated. Watercolor allows her to create paintings with freshness and immediacy.  Her style is loose, to take advantage of the characteristics of the medium.

    In this demo, Kathy has been inspired by the still lifes of Charles Reid to create a Garden Party.  Her focus will be to use color and composition, as well as edge techniques, to create a mood.

    Kathy Durdin is a signature member of Florida Watercolor Society, as well as Watercolor West, Southern, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Tallahassee and Florida Suncoast Watercolor Societies. She was also the 2012 President of Florida Watercolor Society and is its current Director of Operations. She was featured in the 2013 Watercolor Artists’ “Ones to Watch” and her work is in permanent collections in Florida at Tampa General and the President’s Collection at the College of William and Mary. She is also on the Board of Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts, and President of Tampa Regional Artists. In addition to teaching watercolor her “day job” is as a coach and leadership develop consultant
