by Alec Clayton for OLY ARTS

Kathy Gore-Fuss was born in Seattle but spent most of her childhood in the Midwest. She returned to Seattle in 1966, then attended the University of Washington and studied at Pratt Fine Arts Center. In 2004, her husband of 23 years died suddenly of a heart attack. After his death, she returned to UW to complete her undergraduate degree in fine arts. She has taught art in Olympia and Tacoma colleges and organizes arts workshops in her home studio. During her artistic career, she’s worked in a variety of media. Her most recent works have been paintings en plein air, often from Priest Point Park and the Port of Olympia. She exhibits these in galleries in Olympia and Seattle.
