Kathy Meaney Artist
Kathy Meaney passionately tells stories, capturing a moment in time through her series, “Ladies of the Lake,” by painting playful, but undisputedly “genuine figures”. Her ambition is to communicate relationship of female friendship expressively through body language, touching the complex relationship that form bonds among women. The comfort and familiarity of this perspective is a goal she strives to portray in her vibrant art. She is fulfilled as the observer embarks on their own personal journey as they study, analyze and identify with each picture. The popularity of her “ladies” propelled Kathy to create a product line having her art series affordable to everyone. Kathy’s product line includes: blank notecards, magnets, mugs, coaster sets, plaques, trivets, giclees (canvas reproductions), paper prints, and outdoor art available in over 90 images. Canadian made products and name drop customizing is available. Originals are acrylic on canvas. Kathy resides in Spruce Grove, Alberta.

I grew up on a farm in Redwater, AB and then moved to the big city of Edmonton where I pursued a career in Computer Graphics in the late 70’s. After meeting my husband and moving to Spruce Grove, AB we started construction company where I assisted in the office and day to day happenings. Raising three sons and all the while, dabbling in various types of art forms. My “ladies” began as an experiment one afternoon in 2005 at our cabin on Pigeon Lake, AB. As each “Lady” emerged, my passion had found what I truly loved! There are now over 90 paintings all together and from them, I have enjoyed wonderful emails and conversations from strangers around the world. This is truly my blessing.
