My work explores the relationship between painting and the self. For me, painting is an expression of the struggle for personal meaning and authenticity. Although this reflective investigation frequently reveals more questions than answers, it offers greater self-awareness and highlights aspects of personal identity. My search for a clearer sense of self has led me to explore the tension between abstraction and figurative imagery and the tension between intuitive and premeditated ways of working. My practice is a personally expressive endeavor in which intuition and ambiguity play major roles in a responsive painting process. Throughout my work, I strive to illuminate my ever-changing sense of self and relation to others.

Kathy Braud is a self-directed educated artist who has taken a variety of workshops from national and regional artists in the last 20 years to become proficient in watercolor and watermedia. She has been able to incorporate the new information into her own viewpoint of creating art.
Braud likes the large watercolor societies in the state of Minnesota which also give artists the group experience of learning from each other and co-operative endeavors.
She is a Signature Member of the Red River Watercolor Society, a member of many art organizations and past board member of organizations. She participates in many art shows, exhibitions and public displays throughout the state each year.
Kathy feels her greatest artistic accomplishments might be the wedding & shower gifts and some very special family portraiture she has been able to design. Kathy was a nurse for many years and now retired, feels very blessed to be able to use her people skills and artistic talents in this new direction.
