Kathy Hoets was born in Taipei,Taiwan..
When she was 10 years old, she and her family moved to California.
Kathy is also fluent in Mandarin and English.
Kathy has lived in many different parts of the world, including
New York City, Geneva Switzerland and Bali Indonesia.
While living in Bali she wrote and illustrated her first children's book, "Erik's Garden in Bali".
Kathy's paintings are abstractly autobiographical as she brings here subject to life through her own vision of expression; this is especially true of her steel paintings.
Her vivid recall of images, along with the sense of being lost in each brush stroke on steel, creates a distinctive and unique painting.
The stunning complexity of her nature paintings seem to pulsate with waves of branches, leaves and flowers; inspired by her own pure observations of nature.
She gives each of her subjects an incisive feel; capturing the depth and contrast of movement..bringing her vision to life on the cold steel.
Nude's n Nature
We all have dreams…
The desire to share ,
With the ability to paint a vivid mental image,
To capture with a sweeping brush
And bring into existence.
A visual expression of imagination,
I feel I have accomplished my ability to share this passion of my own imagination..
