KATHLEEN SWAYDAN | ARTIST PORTFOLIO
KATHLEEN SWAYDAN: STATEMENT
My art is influenced by the ancient Greek and Roman tradition of landscape and still life paintings frequently found on the walls of guest quarters in private domiciles such as those found in Pompeii. These images provided a private devotional area and visual banquet for the guests and relayed an expression of hospitality and generosity. This ancient tradition is the undertone of my artwork. I was born in Los Angeles and reside in Altadena. I am a member of California Art Club, College Art Association, Creative Arts Group, Pasadena Society of Artists, and Verdugo Hills Art Association.
