Kathy Breaux is from Los Angeles, California and grew up in Downey. She knew art would be her profession before entering grade school. Kathy graduated from Cal-State University Long Beach with her B.F.A. in Painting and Drawing in 1979. She then went on to complete her M.A. in Painting and Drawing at Cal-State Fullerton in 1984.
Kathy has been teaching art since 1981 and currently teaches art to children at nine community centers as well as conducting private lessons.

Kathy’s current artistic direction involves a combination of figuration and abstraction to convey the “spirituality” within us all. She works with mixed media watercolors and wants the work to visually move the viewer on an emotional level. She is interested in meditation and Eastern Philosophy as well as Latin American folk art, medieval art and the modern abstractionists.
