Artist Bio

Kathy Roseth is a Seattle-based artist and retired low-income housing professional.  She was born in Iran of medical missionary parents and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Wausau, Wisconsin.  She received a bachelor’s degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and two master’s degrees (first English, then business) from the University of Washington in Seattle.

Roseth studied drawing and painting at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, including four years with the Kang-O’Higgins Atelier (graduating 2019) and one year with the Flack Core Drawing Atelier (2020).

Working in oils, Roseth paints still lifes, portraits, figures, and landscapes in the realist and Impressionist traditions of Western representational art.  She has exhibited her work in juried shows at regional galleries, art fairs, and senior living properties.

As a member artist at Gallery 110 in Seattle, Roseth is creating a body of work to exhibit in May 2023 (https://www.gallery110.com).
