About the Artist

Kathleen Eaton is a Chicago area artist whose work is an interpretation of city and suburban environments. Since living in the city as a child she developed a fascination with architectural spaces and the unexpected solitude as well as human activities that occur in them.

The process of developing a picture begins with an idea of a place, real or imaginary, and then she will scout out locations for subject matter to be used in the piece. The work proceeds through a series of sketches to a full-sized drawing, which is transferred to canvas. Her technique involves building up areas of color through the application of many thin transparent layers of oil paint to achieve vibrant color effects.

The artist‘s work has been included in extensive exhibits and collections throughout the midwest. Her best known pieces are the large paintings that are part of the art permanently installed at Midway Airport in Chicago. She received her formal art training at the University of Illinois in Urbana.
