Kathleen Carlson has been professionally involved in the arts since age ten. She was a professor and studio manager at The George Washington University, working and teaching in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional media.
Her work has been shown in commercial, public, and government spaces and private homes around Maryland, Virginia, and DC. In addition to producing her own art, she has worked collaboratively with students on permanent exhibits for the Baltimore Zoo and local elementary and high schools and colleges.
Kathleen's art draws intensely from her own personal experiences. She has created art series around themes of environmental peril, the woman's place in society, the events of September 11, 2001, and the beauty and fragility of nature on the Chesapeake Bay.
