Kathi Robinson Bubeck
Kathi Robinson Bubeck is a native of Colorado Springs, where from a young age she was surrounded by artists, art educators, and fine art. Kathi received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education and art from Western State College (Gunnison, CO). She has been privileged to teach a variety of age groups over the years.
She is a mixed-media artist who loves to work with experimental materials and repurposed additives. She purposes to implement the fundamental elements of art from her training while drawing inspiration from artists in history. Her primary influences are eclectic and varied, including Paul Klee, Lee Krassner, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and Georgia O'Keeffe. She has also been privileged to learn from local artists as well—most recently, Erin Gillespie (whose FAC class provided her growth and encouragement).
Kathi observes that once, while developing a lesson plan for an art class, she came across Paul Klees’ valuable observation, “Drawing is like taking a walk with a line.” She recalls how influential that simple advice became in her own art: “I discovered these landscapes emerging. So now wherever I go, as I gaze at a horizon my imagination takes that same walk.”
