Kathy Pruett moved to Mount Airy, NC shortly after earning her degree in music education from Lenoir Rhyne University. She is currently working as organist and choir director at Grace Moravian Church.
Her interest in art grew from her love of flower arranging and a desire to create a more permanent portrayal of the beauty of nature. She explored many mediums before settling on oils and pastels. Kathy has been most influenced by Carolyn Blaylock, an instructor and nationally recognized artist, with whom she studied for many years, and by Kathy Reece, a friend and artist from Raleigh. She paints on a regular basis in a studio in downtown Winston Salem, with several other artists who provide encouragement and advice as she continues to refine her painting “voice.” For ongoing art instruction and inspiration, she has attended workshops taught by Morgan Samuel Price, Camille Przewodek, Egi Antonaccio, Kate Worm, Andy Braitman, Lisa Boardwine and Susan Ogilvie.
