Kathy Greenwood is a painter residing in the upper reaches of New York's Hudson River Valley. She earned a BS in Studio Art at the College of Saint Rose, and an MFA in textiles from the University of Michigan. Her love for the conventions of classical still life painting is bound to her equal affection for the traditions of textile production and use within the home. She feels that the surfaces upon which her paintings are made are objects in and of themselves, and are essential to the content of her work. Greenwood’s work has been exhibited throughout the region in solo and group presentations, and is held in numerous private collections. She was recently included in the John F. Peto Museum's National Exhibition of Trompe L'oeil. Her other accomplishments include a site-specific painting installation at Contemporary Sculpture at Chesterwood, a totally out-of-control vegetable garden and two small, unruly children. Greenwood is also a curator and writer who specializes in the presentation and interpretation of art in public places.
