Kuchler began painting at the age of 14 in oils and then turned to watercolors because, "I love the fact that I can take my small round paint palette wherever I go."
She received her certification in 2015 as a Botanical Watercolorist and Illustrator through the Morton Arboretum, Lisle. Her regular shows and memberships are: Gallery 200 (West Chicago), Natures Artist Guild shows, DuPage Art League, Norris Cultural Arts Center, St, Charles Arts Council, Fine Line Art Center and Gallery; Batavia Public Library, Greater Geneva Studio Tour, West Chicago Public Library, West Chicago City Hall, Water Street Studio, and the Fermilab Employees’ Art Show.
Kathi chose the month of September to exhibit all of the hues of oranges, burnt umbers, and majestic blues in both oils and watercolors at Gallery 200, 103 West Washington Street. “September is the month to start looking at the colors in our area as things start to change into our autumn colors,” she says.
Her September exhibit will consist of nature, botanicals and landscapes of the central area of our Great Lakes, with these colors in mind.
