Etsy Feature of the Day #2: Kathy Panton

Kathy Panton on Etsy

Today's feature Etsy artist is Kathy Panton. On her main Etsy page, she works primarily with gouache to create whimsical, lively, and colorful creations. The colors swim together perfectly while providing plenty of contrasts to keep the eyes busy. Each illustration is unique and wonderful and are a definite must see! This is what Kathy says about herself:

"I have a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Major in Photography) Queensland College of Art.I've also done short courses in Illustration at Saint Martins School of Art London
My illustrations are created using gouache on paper.
I am of the mindset that you should work in a job you love, and nothing less.
I like looking through book shops, chocolate, second hand stores, french film, and strange books."

You can find a wondeful article about her work, and what it means to truly be a full-time artist, here:
