I am Kathleen Murray and I am a butterfly.
I emerged from my cocoon and my life as a caterpillar on the day I retired. I looked around and saw color and light and was happy. Like any good butterfly I flitted from one beautiful thing to the next never stopping long. Thus I have amassed a huge collection of styles and teaching philosophies. I either have no recognizable style or I have a dozen. Take your pick. Mostly I gravitate toward loose and fluid emphasizing light and color. My current favorite colors, and like any good butterfly I am fickle, are the colors of sunshine and summer. I am flitting off now. I see some lupines that are an amazing shade of blue violet.
