Kathy Anderson’s pleinaire paintings of fauna and flora are some of the finest representations of flowers in America. With a vast knowledge of how best to draw and design sumptuous subjects, this multi-award winner agilely interweaves vibrant colors in a spontaneous exuberant manner, while at the same time delicate sensitive passages intermingle to bring her subjects to life.


Anderson was born in Rockville Center, Long Island, NY. She studied Advertising at SUNY Farmingdale, NY but preferred to paint. She has been married to John Anderson (a master woodworker) for 43 years and has two sons.


Anderson says, “My passion for painting is rooted in my garden. I strive to translate my excitement about the experience of growth, light, and translucent colors from the earth to my canvas. Nature has always spoken to me, whether it is the rushing of a waterfall or the burst of new green in the Spring. I am awed by the beauty around me and I love to share my vision through my paintings.” She confessed, “The design, for me, is the most important stage of making a painting. I’m looking for some kind of a path or movement through it, some kind of sign or feeling that it’s perfect.” In other words, she wants each of her works to distill the very essence of nature for the viewer—to bring alive, at a glance, a scene and the spirit behind it with an immediacy and power that may have taken the artist herself hours, days, or even many weeks or months to grasp (see Southwest Art, April, 2013). She has a genuine love for living things and paints what excites her. She also is an accomplished jazz pianist.


In 2001, Anderson joined a group of painters and was taught by the renowned artist Richard Schmid. This opportunity renewed and revitalized her work and began a period of intense focus and rapid growth. Painting with Schmid and his wife Nancy Guzik’s group known at the Putney Painters for over a decade has provided invaluable knowledge, support and inspiration.


Anderson has an intimate relationship with flowers, gardens and nature. She is an avid gardener and spends hours studying the growth, development and natural beauty of flowers in bloom. Painting outdoors, she admits, “I view the world with a painter’s eye, finding paintings in all of my everyday experiences and travels.”


Anderson is a member of the National Arts Club (NYC); the Salmagundi Club (NYC); Oil painters of America; Allied Artists of American (NYC), Connecticut Watercolor Society (CT); Putney Painters (VT) and the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters.


Her numerous awards included the Impressionist Award of Excellence, Oil Painters of American National Juried Exhibition (2013); Art Renewal Center Salon Competition (2013); Western Art Collector Award of Excellence, Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters (2012); President’s Award, Salmagundi Club, NY (2012); International Museum of Contemporary Masters of Fine Art, TX (2012) Salon Inter-national; National Arts Club Members Show, House of Hydenryk Award (2012); Salmagundi Club, Harmer Smith SCNY Award (2011); National Arts Club, President’s Award (2011); American Art Invitational, Saks Galleries Southwest Art Magazine, Award of Excellence (2011); Alden Bryan Memorial First Place, Salmagundi Club (2010); Margery Soroka Memorial Award, Salmagundi Club, First Prize (2010) and many more awards.
