"I paint what I see plus all that flows
into my mind from a thousand sources."

“As for the rougher stuff, aesthetically speaking, Kathleen Elsey’s paintings exerts a bold,
almost post-Fauvist-meets-funk touch."

My interest in painting is with direct paint application in an expressive manner while using pure color combinations and meaty brushstrokes. The energetic emotion of moving paint around the canvas, searching relentlessly

keeps me from seeing details."
