Award winning artist and teacher, Kathleen Lack, works in oils and pastels, specializing in the portrait and figure. She has garnered many family portrait commissions with up to eight people in a single portrait. As with her portraits and figurative work, the body language and environment is informal, relaxed and fluid: kids playing at the beach, climbing trees, observing nature - people being themselves. Lack's work includes paintings of “The Ballet”, a Western theme entitled ”Boots, Hats, & Horses”, “Musicians” and “Figuratives”. She is a member of the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, California Art Club and Marin Museum of Contemporary Art.
