Our Core Staff



From science to art, Kathy has spent the past 30 years working in Clinical Research.

The gift of pottery lessons with a master potter 25 years ago furthered the love of art and clay.

Now after retiring Kathy has embarked on a new adventure as owner of Studio E Art Class. She is thrilled to have the opportunity of providing a welcoming environment for all to find joy in creativity.

I have been working as an illustrator/artist for over 35 years. I am a published illustrator and accomplished art director for a wide variety of publishers, companies, and industries. My illustrations are published for catalog covers, comic books, magazines, advertising, editorials, and packaging. Additionally my artwork has also been in numerous galleries, art shows, and exhibitions.

Developing drawing and painting styles, mastering techniques, and experimenting with various mediums fuels my abilities to deliver my concepts and visions as a diverse body of work.

A body of work that finds inspiration from nature, spirituality, the human condition, and political/ social events. Capturing an inspired moment as a drawing or painting gives me the opportunity to share moments of inspiration. No matter the subject matter or the medium(s) used to create my artwork, there is a rhythm-a consistency that resonates from one project to the next.


  • Studied Illustration at the School of Visual Arts, NYC
  • Studied Printmaking and Painting at New Paltz State University
  • Studied Commercial Art at Duchess Community College: Graduated with an Associates degree and now teaches “The Art of Storytelling” every season!

Office Assistant

I am a Licensed Vet Tech who recently decided that I needed a break from the high stress of the medical field. My daughter has been taking classes at Studio E since she was a year and a half and we have always loved the warm, welcoming environment. While I do not have any real artistic abilities, I am so happy to be here to help the students and teachers with their daily needs.
