Printmaker Kathleen Gallagher
About the artist
Kathleen has been a monotype/monoprint printmaker for the past 18 years. Originally, an avocation, she now considers printmaking her vocation. She has always studied art, taking many courses in many mediums over the years, but it wasn’t until she retired from the US Navy that she devoted herself full time to the art of printmaking. In 1994 while living in Rhode Island, she was introduced to printmaking through an etching class. She continued to study etching for two years until her husband’s career relocated them to Virginia Beach. Although relocating disrupted her printmaking studies, she continued to study art in other mediums. In 2003 after moving back to Annapolis, Kathleen found a printmaking workshop where she discovered the magic of monotypes. The mystery and surprise of making monotypes captured her and she continues to study, learn and practice this medium almost every day. Kathleen’s website: www.kathleengallagherart.com.
