Kathy Stark

The Cummer Museum's Concourse Art Shop welcomes Northeast Florida visual artist and local wilderness park advocate, Kathy Stark.

Like the artists in Outside: In, Stark draws inspiration from the natural world. She creates large-scale oil and watercolor paintings from her experiences in our surrounding ecological areas, places she considers our region's greatest asset, and hopes to inspire others to visit these special places.

Stark states, "Although realistic in my approach, as I paint, transformations take place, and the subject takes on a life of its own. The background veers toward abstraction, while the focus becomes more dramatic, and colors get amplified. To me, this is the REAL Florida."
