Ambassador of the Week: Kate McCullough

Meet Kate McCullough, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!

“Hustle Bustle” is a studio piece I did from some plein air pieces I did at John Salminen’s workshop in NYC.

I began painting in watercolor about 15 years ago after a 35 year hiatus from art. Initially my studies at Villa Marie College and SUNY College at Buffalo included general design, art history and oil and acrylic painting. When I returned to painting I decided that watercolor was a medium that I would like to explore. I immediately fell in love with it and I have not looked back. I started with courses at the University of Tennessee and then moved on to workshops at Arrowmont, Cheap Joe’s, Kanuga and several that were private I presently teach a watercolor class at the Fountain City Art Center and the Oak Ridge Art Center. I am the former president of the Knoxville Watercolor Society, a member of the Art Market Gallery in downtown Knoxville, a signature member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.

“Bases Rest” was done for the 75th anniversary of our Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
