Kathie Camara is a professional artist who has taken classes from many famous artists in order to develop her own style. She holds many certifications in different mediums and is always updating her skills to better teach her students. Although she no longer paints wall murals, she still takes commissions on portraits and pet portraits and teaches people to paint pets, portraits and seascapes in a series of 2-day workshops. When a painting turns out well, Kathie is elated. She knows that a piece has turned out well when someone looks at it and smiles because it has brought back to them a happy memory.
Another of Kathie’s passions is warm glass. Several layers of cut glass are fused together at very high temperatures in a glass kiln to form beautiful Dichroic Pendants. The same glass is fused into larger sheets to ‘slump’ into vases, plates, coasters, candleholders and other decorative glass art. A design of yours can also be painted onto the glass to make the fused art truly one-of-a-kind. Kathie also encases photos of your family member, pet or a favorite automobile in glass pendants, making necklaces or key chains that are unique. In addition to exhibiting & selling her paintings and glass art at Central FL Galleries and Art Studios and teaching classes and seminars at local Art Centers, she volunteers at the Orlando Cat Cafe and teaches people how to paint kitties. Kathie is a former Editor of The Stroking Edge, Donna Dewberry’s quarterly online magazine.
