Kathy Nelson has been making art all her life. She was born and raised in Colquitt County and currently works as an instructor at the Colquitt County Arts Center. She lived in Atlanta for 18 years and owned a gallery, frame shop, and studio in the Atlanta area called the Academy Art Studios. She moved back to Colquitt County from Atlanta in 1993 then moved to Jacksonville to work at Shoshana Arts as the Art Director over the Fine Arts department for 5 years. She has since returned to the Arts Center and has worked in Moultrie ever since.

She enjoys painting spiritual pieces, favoring Impressionism that borders on a little bit of surrealism. Her primary medium is acrylics on canvas and board. She also paints murals, does hand building in ceramics, and commissions. Over the years, she has earned multiple awards in juried art exhibitions and has been invited to the governor’s mansion to show an exhibit. She feels blessed being able to do what she does and loves it.
