Gallery 'N' Gifts featuring Guest Artist Kathy Burns


Gallery 'N' Gifts March guest artist is new Tehachapi resident Kathy Burns. Kathy, whose love of art began in high school, started a journey of self discovery after a broken marriage, loading her two horses in her trailer with a plan to visit every drivable state.

During her 13-month trek, which began in 2013 and spanned 43 states and 30,000 miles across America's campgrounds and national parks, she took solace in painting.

Kathy painted scenes of her horses, Dreamy and Wildflower, set against the wilds of Wyoming or the meadows of Massachusetts, while slowly finding herself again.

Returning home to Pasadena, California in 2014 with a broken trailer, a bad back and five states left on her list, her spirit was on the road to recovery. Kathy kept right on painting using her studies from the year as subjects for larger finished painting. Kathy's first show was at the 26th Annual Cattlemen's Western Art Show and Sale in Paso Robles.

Kathy, who worked in the field of graphic arts for years, never lost her love of painting.

Please join us at Gallery 'N' Gift's for the March 2 First Friday event to meet Kathy and enjoy her wonderful work.
