About the Juror
Kathy Leader - juror


Kathy Leader grew up in South Africa where she received a degree in fine art at the Michaelis School of Art, University of Cape Town. She then went on to get her masters in art education.
Kathy worked as a  figurative  artist,  and then moved into more abstract forms as she experimented with various mediums.  Since combining collage, mono prints and wax, her work has be-come more about the unfolding creative  process. She often incorporates words from songs, poems, prayers and her journals. She works intuitively, allowing the process to inform her of the workings of her subconscious mind.
Her work has been shown in various galleries in Los Angeles. Currently Kathy teaches private art lessons and workshops to children and adults out of her art process studio. Her style of teaching reflects her own creative journey allowing the process to be-come a personal voyage of internal discovery.Visit her website at kathyleaderstudio.com.
