Kathleen Squires - About the Artist
Kathleen Squires was born in Wisconsin to native Texans, schooled in Montana, and has lived in the Southwest since 1963. Always an art lover, she turned to painting professionally following a successful career in advertising and public relations.
She has had lots of other titles in her life - career woman, traveler, wife, mother.....and now, full-time professional artist. While each has molded her through the years, none has allowed her to explore her creative talents as much as her last title. With a passion for color, life and putting her thoughts on canvas, Kathleen has become one of the area's best visual artists.
Kathleen continues to study and strives to achieve the apparent simplicity that
comes from skill. Her success as a fine artist is demonstrated by the numerous exhibitions in whch she participates and in the private collections worldwide where her work resides.
Kathleen has studied with a variety of artists, among them Qiang Huang,
Kevin Weckback, Alexander and Lyuba Titovets, Eric Wallis,
Peggy Kroll-Roberts, Bonnie Poselli, and Frank Webb. She is a member of the Art Guild of Southern New Mexico and works in her studio daily.
“It is color that drives Squires’ work along with
a keen eye for rhythm and inventive composition…
Squires’ works are a pleasant walk through her mind’s eye
where surprise balances the anticipated.”

Southern New Mexico & West Texas)
