Born in East Tennessee, Katherine Cobb's passion for all arts has been evident since childhood when she started sketching, but she didn't start painting until the 1990's, gradually adding acrylics, watercolors, oils, and pastels. Katherine still works part-time as an economist & land planner, after long experience as a corporate executive. MBA in management/ finance, The Wharton School; BA in economics/ management, NC State University.
Katherine loves teaching art. She volunteers to teach art to at-risk and vulnerable people for the same reason she is passionate about painting: as a release valve, a way to give expression to her feelings. She likes to see the light in their eyes when they discover that anyone can draw. Sketching and painting are ways to get what they see onto paper and canvas, no matter their skill level.
Anyone can draw, they just don’t know it. Sketching and painting are ways to get what you see onto paper and canvas.
