Kathryn Carlyle was born in Chicago. Earlier in her artist career she lived in Brazil. After living for many years in the artistically rich city of New York as well, she relocated to the more temperate climate of south Florida where she pursues her passion as an abstract expressionist painter on a full-time basis. She has enrolled in classes and workshops for several decades in Oak Park, Illinois, Sedona, Arizona, Palm Beach and Boca Raton Florida. Kathryn’s paintings are in private collections and museums in both the United States and Europe.
