Kate Withers is a professional artist living a great nomadic lifestyle .. warm deserts in winter .. mountains or the high Colorado Plateau in summer. Taught drawing and painting at Great Basin College in Nevada.  Home base is currently in Torrey – the Capitol Reef region .. an outdoor painter’s paradise.

Primarily a landscape painter .. many small oil studies are painted plein-air while on extended camping expeditions in the vast American outback .. the clear light and vivid colors are so enticing .. one is compelled to linger and observe.  My focus is to create a convincing sense of place .. of being there .. the stunning light .. the radiant colors .. the sense of a living presence.  Love the High Desert.
