Kathryn Gastelum an Arizona native,
received a BFA from the University of Arizona
in Graphic Design- 1987.  During college she studied
in Paris, France for both Art & Art History while traveling
to surrounding countries.  Today, traveling coast to coast
and trips to Europe continue to be the greatest inspiration for art.
Kathryn worked in Advertising as a Media Buyer for radio
and print until raising a family became most important.  
Always passionate about art and the desire to expand her
education in art & design, she completed her education for
Interior Design at the Arizona Institute of Interior Design,
later becoming affliated with ASID, the American Society
of Interior Designers, as an Allied Member.  Kathryn joined
her husband/Architect-Builder in 2002 as the Interior Designer
for their business Centerline Design & Interiors, LLC... where
many beautiful, custom homes and timeless interiors have been created.   
Her passion to return to painting was imperative, and with her focus
on painting, Kathryn always finds inspiration in our awesome Southwest sunsets,
classic jazz music, travel and finding simple beauty in anything,
anywhere and everywhere. Little things, like a champagne glass or coffee cups
on a bistro table, doves nestled on a wire, the expansive beauty of sand dunes,
camels and pensive Bedouins of the Sahara desert all relate to a deeper meaning
to capture on canvas.
Color and composition truly inspires her soul intention and the next improvisation
in color.  Her large, colorful paintings range from abstraction to realism in mediums
of oil, cold wax, acrylic or french dyes on her impressive hand painted silk scarves.
Each unique piece, a creative expression of her spirit and soul, for you.     

Take time, to see the beauty around you.
