Kathy enjoys watercolor painting as a 'left brain' release from her full time career as an IT project manager. "I first discovered watercolor painting in my 7th grade art class. I loved it, but did not pursue it seriously until years later when my mother, Mary Ann Wahrer, started painting after my father passed away. She was an amazing artist and really inspired me to pick up the brush again." Kathy lives in Castro Valley California with her wife, Joey, and their terrier mix, Maddy.
