|Kathy de Cano has expressed herself visually since she was very young. Most of her work is done with mixed media or acrylics, her styles ranging from abstract to expressionistic to impressionistic. She has also participated in several mural projects. Her many travels are a large influence on her work, as well as her love of nature, textures, and color. Kathy is a member of the North Gwinnett Arts Association in Suwanee, Georgia, and the Norcross Gallery and Artist Studios in Norcross, Georgia. She exhibits at Expressions Fine Art Gallery and Artist Studios in Lawrenceville, Georgia, where she has her studio. Her work has been in shows in Bryson City, North Carolina, and Sandy Springs, Suwanee, Johns Creek, Sugar Hill, Lawrenceville, and Norcross, all in Georgia. In February of 2020, she was the featured artist at the Suwanee Arts Center in Suwanee, Georgia, where she resides.
She had this to say about her art: My hope is that my art will bring joy or reflective thoughtfulness to those who see it. I paint with a great deal of love and passion, infusing my heart and my spirit into each piece, and my work continues to be a source of personal expression as well as deep learning for me. My journey has been marked by it, from my first scribblings as a small child to the drawings and paintings that I have been inspired to do throughout most of my life.
