For over 30 years, Northern Ireland born Kathy Lewis has been drawing and painting
in her adopted home county of Gloucestershire, in some of her favourite spots in UK and a little of Europe (Italy+).
Largely self-taught, both Kathy’s natural talent and sheer joy for her art is clear,
and what you see here is just a fraction of her striking collection of sketches, paintings and iPad art.
It’s a glimpse into a world where she brings everything from grand Venetian architecture,
to a humble box of shelled peas to vibrant life.
And who can resist her sweeping fields of purple lavender,
huddles of tumbledown outbuildings and countless coastal curiosities along the way?

Diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2005, stamina, concentration,
-setting out on a painting trip is more of a challenge – not to mention keeping a steady brush.
But with characteristic devotion, Kathy was soon discovering
what can be done with imagination, determination, a love for creating... and sometimes an iPad.

Enjoy your browse around the site.
If you find a smile creeping across your face, then you’ll understand it when Kathy says:
“I've had such a great time exploring fantastic places, playing with lovely colours,
skipping about on coastal paths and meeting so many enthusiastic people. I have
had some moments of pure joy and the best job in the world.”

Kathy’s former gallery and shop at Taurus Crafts in Lydney is now closed,
but some of her work is available via Picture Cards, Taurus Crafts.
