Kathleen (Kitty) Davids is an accomplished award-winning artist currently residing in Sonora.
Kitty, as she’s known to her friends, has studied pastel, acrylic and watercolor painting most of her adult life. While studying with Patricia and Elizabeth Hubble, she discovered the wonders of oil painting. She has attended and learned from many master painters in workshops in Utah, Montana, Colorado and California.
The Aloft Art Gallery has Davids as one of its 37 co-op artists as well as having her sit on the board that helps keep the gallery going.
“I love all forms of art, however, I always come back to oil painting as it is my first love,” Davids said. “Art is a never-ending learning process and I am excited by new ideas, approaches and challenges inherent in the creation process. I especially love doing wildlife and portraits.”
Davids has been an active member of the Mother Lode Art Association, the Pastel Society of the West Coast and the Central Sierra Arts Council. She has done commissioned art works that hang in private collections as well as original murals all over Northern California. Kitty has been teaching fine art painting for many years in her Sonora studio.
The Aloft Art Gallery will host a special event on the second Saturday of the month, July 9, featuring Davids’ work in the gallery and also in the window in the Baer’s Alcove.
The Aloft Art Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
