Kathy  Stradley profile picture

Kathy Stradley has lived in the beautiful Temecula Valley since 1987, her passion is to paint from life.  Whether it is painting on location the landmarks and vistas of the landscape around her or painting portraits in the studio, she tries to capture the subtle nuances visible to her eye rather than relying on photographs or memory.  As she says, "Light is constantly changing so the artist must choose how to represent it in the most dynamic way possible." 

Kathy is a long-time member of the Temecula Valley Art League and the Fallbrook Art Association, receiving awards in various local art shows.  She has exhibited her work from Del Mar to Idyllwild.  She is currently on the board of directors for the Dorland Mountains Art Colony, participating in many of their shows.  In Temecula she has exhibited at "Art Off the Walls" events, the Ralph Love Plein Air Competition, the Mighty Mini Masterpiece shows and the Art and Street Painting Festival.  She is also a regular exhibitor at the Fallbrook Art Association Gallery in Fallbrook.  Observing and painting the places and people of the Temecula Valley have given Kathy plenty of inspiration to accomplish her goals.
