Kathy Goff's painting will be featured in the 2012 33rd Annual International Marine Art Exhibition in Mystic, Connecticut September - December 31, 2012
Kathy Goff's unique approach to animal art is rooted in her New England birthplace. Living on the edge of a wildlife sanctuary, she raised a series of orphaned and injured creatures that served as subjects for her art. At the University of Hartford Art School, Goff majored in sculpture, incorporating animals into her figurative work.
In 1970 she opened her studio in Colorado and traveled extensively, studying and paitning wildlife in California and the Southwest, Europe, the Eastern Coastal regions and national exhibits and at galleries in New England and the Southwest.
You will find Goff's artwork on greeting cards, for the National Wildlife Federation, Marian Heath, Leanin' Tree Cards and the American Humane Society. Her work has also been used extensively for fundraising by the National Audubon Society, Ducks Unlimited and other organizations. Recently, Kathy has been commissioned to paint some very special pet portraits that become cherished family heirlooms.
Kathy's paintings and sculpture can be seen at her studio / gallery at the Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, CT and in Seasons magazine, in which she is a featured artist and author in each edition.
