Kathy Collins, Painter


For the months of April and May 2024, the Trinity Art Gallery is pleased to be showcasing Kathy Collins’ watercolor paintings.  Kathy has lived in Lancaster County for over 20 years. She has practiced optometry for over 23 years and has her own business, Kissel Eye Care, located in Lititz. She has taken watercolor workshops in the area, and has won several ribbons in art shows at the LCAA. Her artwork is a mix of landscapes and animals from the local area as well as from her travels. Kathy paints in her spare time, seeing beauty in her surroundings and feeling compelled to express it.


Kathy says about her art “As an artist, I see the beauty in the world around me. I find peace and serenity in creating art in my downtime from a demanding career as an optometrist. I have been drawing and painting since I was a young child and started taking formal art classes when I was 11 years old. I am mostly self-taught, but have attended workshops by Tom Lynch, Kim Johnson and many others online during COVID. I fell in love with watercolor and love painting landscapes, animals, flowers, and birds. I love to travel and take photos of the places I have been and recreate them in the studio.”


Kathy has also painted several house portraits and animal paintings on commission. If you have a favorite pet, scene, or vacation home, please feel free to contact her through her website  www.watercolorkc.art to paint a custom painting just for you.
