Name: Kathleen Cook PSA
Bio: Kathleen Cook was born in Amarillo, Texas in 1949. Her father, Lloyd Cook, was a professional advertising artist and painter. Kathleen always wanted to be an artist. She cannot remember a time when she was not drawing on every available surface.
She took her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Texas Tech University, in Lubbock, when she did commissioned portraits of children to help finance her education. During her entire university career she also had commissions in the advertising departments of two retail fashion department stores that led to ten years of head illustrator and advertising art director after graduation.
In 1981, a move to the Texas Hill Country allowed her to explore her own visual ideas. A short year later she was awarded coveted signature status by the Pastel Society of America.
Kathleen’s work has been featured in American Artists, Pastel Artists International, and Southwest Art. Since 1980 it has been consistently winning awards, and her work is in the collections of the San Antonio Art League Museum, and the San Marcos Telephone Company.
Kathleen’s studio is located in the historic art village of Old Ingram Loop, 6 miles west of Kerrville, Texas.
