Kathleen Grant Studios

I grew up in Stamford, Connecticut. My love for art started at a young age. After taking numerous art classes in high school, I attended Johnson State College to pursue my dream of becoming an artist.

I then found my calling; I wanted to share my love and enthusiasm of art through teaching. At the age of 27 I became a K-8 art teacher. I found while I worked with the children, they were bringing more inspiration to my art.

After teaching for thirty years I retired from my teaching career to work as a full time artist and jewelry designer. I reside in the beautiful Green Mountains of Shelburne, Vermont with my husband, Doug , two cats( Alma and Rosie) and a new puppy Willy. I also have three beautiful adult children of my own, Ashley, Kaitlyn, and Nicholas.

As an artist, I find there are no boundaries when sticking to a specific artistic medium.

In my paintings, I works in a wide variety of media including: water colors, pen, oil sticks, acrylic paints, colored pencils, and ink sticks. I love to create; I also love to share my passion, and hope to inspire my viewers, peers, students, friends and family through my art.

My jewelry designs specialize in wirework and cold connections (a technique that does not involve the use of heat or flame). I love to make jewelry with Lake Champlain and Cape Cod beach stones. I also have a passion for upcycling trinkets and vintage treasures to create unique, wearable art.

Clay also fits into my eclectic art, mainly focusing on hand building. I enjoy making function pieces including bowls, platters, vases, and garden art.
