Kathy "Kiki" Kemp
First of all, I’m so lucky to be painting at the Palm House Gallery & Studio with some of my best friends and in an environment that makes art fun and makes me creative. I’ve been painting since grammar school, taken many art classes and studied art history in college. I paint in many mediums, but oils are my favorite. I enjoy painting animals, especially horses, as well as landscapes.”
