Kathy believes one can find true joy in exploring one’s inner creative spirit at any age. Visiting art galleries on vacations, she found herself drawn to both soft, soothing watercolors and vibrant, colorful oil paintings.
Kathy enjoys painting in all three media and finds the process of painting to be invigorating for her mind and soothing to her soul. She loves the ability to produce bold and rich colors in oil, the soft and subtle colors of watercolor, and the textures and flexibility of acrylics. Her artwork includes more serious studies of landscapes as well as still life subjects and whimsical, fun creations.
She is currently teaching acrylic classes at the Osher Institute for Lifelong Learning in Wilmington, Delaware, where she hopes to inspire others to explore their creative spirit.

Women with an average risk of breast cancer - most women - should begin yearly mammograms at age 45.
Women should be able to start the screening as early as age 40 if they want to. It's a good idea to start talking to your health care provider at age 40 about when you should begin screening.
At age 55, women should have mammograms every other year, although women who want to keep having yearly mammograms should be able to do so.
Regular mammograms should continue as long as a woman is in good health.
Breast exams, either from a medical provider or self-exams, are no longer recommended.
The guidelines are for women with average risk for breast cancer. Women at high risk - because of a family history, a breast condition, or another reason - need to begin screening earlier and more often. Talk to your health care provider to be sure.
