Katherine Lechler was born and raised on Long Island’s South Shore, in the small beach community of Point Lookout, New York where she spent summer days with her family. Katherine’s artwork is inspired and fostered by her love for the outdoors, noting the beauty and serenity of the landscapes that lay before her every day.
In 1985 Lechler earned her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at The School of Visual Arts in New York. Having studied Illustration and graphic design she worked in the art field for 23 years as an Art Director for a New York publishing company and currently as a graphic artist and Marketing Coordinator for a hospital in Westchester County, NY.
Through the years Katherine continued to use the outdoors to inspire a collection of work. Her visits to national parks or walking the shore on Long Island give her continued inspiration. Katherine’s landscapes are transformed into mosaics of color and texture, with impasto application of paint lending a sculptural and movement effect to her art. Lechler’s bright colors in acrylic paintings stand out in a crowd, bringing a fresh new look to the seascapes and landscapes that she envisions.
Katherine’s paintings are currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
