"The human form is the foundation of my art. Working in different styles gives me the opportunity to express both the dignity as well as the ludicrous that is present in all of us. In the multi-dimensional qualities of human beings, I find new ideas every day."
Kathryn Bagwell has worked as a vocalist, pianist, and coach for 20 years in the greater Dallas area. She began experimenting with visual art in 2010 and has since established a studio in her home, working with handmade paper from around the world in mixed media collage and painting in oil and gouache. Bagwell had her first solo exhibition in the Bishop Arts District (Dallas) in February 2020, soon followed by a pop-up gallery in West Village of Dallas. She has sold over 20 major pieces of her figurative and abstract work since then, and has become known for her multiple distinctive styles. The first edition of her print series, “Mates for Life”, sold out in three categories.
Bagwell is a self-taught visual artist. She holds music degrees from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN and the University of North Texas.
