Kathleen Jaeger works in mosaic, acrylic, pen & ink and painted glassware. She will be showing art depicting plants and flowers, rendered in several mediums, during her month as the Featured Artist. Kathleen will feature specific flowers of Hawaii, flowers inspired by tropical vegetation and others that have emerged spontaneously from what is in her head.
Kathleen's work with pen and ink on paper has evolved into detailed images using either a pointillism or a cross-hatch method to create the shadings in these drawings. Her painted glassware is the canvas upon which she paints her unique designs. She uses paints specifically formulated for work on glass, then sets it with heat, resulting in a permanent bond.
While working in mosaic, Kathleen uses primarily stained glass as her tesserae as she creates both wall pieces and three-dimensional work.

Kathleen's mosaic work has lately evolved to include larger scale pieces that are difficult to show in the gallery setting, so her medium and smaller pieces and three-dimensional work will be shown.

The larger pieces may be seen in a print presentation. Kathleen enjoys the challenge of working on unusual supports for her work, using discards, and finding ways to bring beauty and sometimes even a new function into their existence.
Painting with acrylic gives Kathleen the opportunity to work in a more spontaneous way than is possible with her other mediums, resulting in vibrant colors and playful images. It has been said of her work that "They make me happy!" No reproductions of Kathleen's work are made; when a theme is being re-visited, each piece is a unique original with its own personality.

Kathleen holds a BFA from Phillips University and a MsEd in Special Education for Emotionally Disturbed Children and Youth from the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!). Through the University of Missouri, Kansas City, she became a registered art therapist with the American Art Therapy Association. She spent her mainland career working within the public schools, teaching art, and as an art therapist in alternative settings for special needs students, mostly with behaviorally disordered/emotionally disturbed populations. Upon her retirement, Kathleen and her husband, Bill, moved to the Big Island.

To meet the artist and learn more about Kathleen's work, she will be working at the gallery on Mondays, November 11 and 18, 2019.
