Biography -- Watercolor Paintings by Kathryn Herzy




Kathryn Herzy:

Illustrator, Writer, Photographer and Painter of Watercolor

Kathryn Herzy 2009

"Having been blessed with the talent of drawing and painting since the age of four, I have made a choice as I have aged to slow down and enjoy my sunset years. However, now and in the future you will still see me at our local art shows!

During this time span I have donated many of my originals, prints and photographs to various groups, societies and associations to raise monies for certain causes.

A few years ago I came across some old 35mm prints that I had enlarged to make a series of the Great South Bay Clammers. Islip Town had a clam transplant program in 1976 and this was the opening day. Only four of the prints were able to be printed. These and other subjects have been produced and can be found in Babylon Village shops.

My paintings of our Fire Island Lighthouse, Captree Bridge, local boats and the wonderful ocean front have become my favorite subjects. Also, I have illustrated five books and have written and illustrated four of my own. These were sold out at once. Now I'm gathering my old Bay prints and tons of my photographs of boats on the Great South Bay and will make a new book within the next year or so."

-Kathryn Herzy
