Kathy Grant  -  Artist


       Kathy Grant grew up in Tulsa, Ok., where she was inspired by some of the great Western artists whose paintings filled the Gilcrease Museum.  Her career started in 1994 painting portraits of Native Americans she met while attending Pow Wow’s and tribal gatherings.

        She has been honored by the Warm Springs Tribe at their Treaty Days Pi-Um-Shaw, and currently has works in both the Warm Springs Tribal Museum and the Yakima Nation Museum in Washington State.

        She is now living in West Linn, Oregon after her move from Texas where she received her BA from University of St. Thomas in Houston, and her Masters Degree at the University of Houston, Clear Lake.  She studied sculpture at the Albert Glassell School of Art in Houston.

         After her move to Oregon she continued her interest in ceramics at Marylhurst College, worked in a pottery studio, attended drawing classes at Hip Bone Studio,  painting lessons with Pat Avril, and also enjoyed working with photographer Ned Westover.

        She continues to paint with Marianne Jansen Rollinson of West Linn, OR. who has mentored her over the years.

        She has had several group and individual shows, her paintings were previously at The Gallery at West Linn, and Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. displayed her work at the Compac World headquarters exhibition of Native American art in Houston.

         Her paintings currently hang in several businesses and hospitals and are in private collections around the US.  She would like to help both for profit and non-profit organizations , which can not afford fine art,  have access to it for their interior spaces.

        She is currently working  on landscapes, flowers and abstracts.
