Cathryne Kulick Loos is an imaginative artist, who loves to paint expressively.  Her work is usually considered quite colorful, while her style is often loosely realistic with an abstract presence.  Cathy’s main goal is to translate impressions of the world that she sees into beautiful paintings.  Her painting style is built on traditional painting techniques coupled with contemporary painting methods.

 

Mrs. Loos values education, both as an instructor and as a continual student. Cathy holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Fontbonne University.  Upon completing her Master of Fine Arts Degree from the same institution, Cathy earned a Certificate of Proficiency in Digital Fine Art from St. Louis Community College. 

 

Cathy’s work has been exhibited both locally and internationally:  international exhibits were at Lyons, France; Tuscany, Italy, and two locations in Taiwan.  Local solo exhibits were at Craves, on St. Louis University Campus, Argonne Gallery in Kirkwood, Maryland Heights Community Center, Fitness Together in Clayton, Kirkwood Community Center, and United Missouri Bank in Kirkwood.

 

Cathy sells and teaches from her studio located in Kirkwood, Missouri.

 

Cathy’s broad educational background makes her an excellent choice for a wide range of projects.  Her pieces are purchased to decorate homes and business offices.
