  “This kind of layered meaning and symbol is something I’ve come to love and expect from Kathleen’s work, and is much of what keeps me coming back to the same pieces over and over again. Every single color choice, brush-stroke, botanical, found object, and shape is replete with many-tiered significance, making each piece a highly complex web of interconnected meanings. Ask her about any piece and she can begin to unravel its many threads, teasing out the various geometrical, astrological, mathematical, elemental, spiritual, and visual components. In other words, if you’ve ever wanted to get lost in a piece of artwork, seeing Realms of Wonder is the way to do it!”
