Kathy Hopwood ~ Fine Art

My Story

Like many artists, I was born this way. Always drawing, painting, creating in some way. Couldn't be stopped! Primarily self-taught, I have worked in a variety of mediums: acrylics, mosaics, cement, fiber, paper pulp, clay, wood and mixed media. Creating sculptures in paper pulp is now my main focus along with my kanji paintings. Some of my previous work is archived below. 


I am on my artist path full time these days. For over 35 years I was a martial artist and taught with my partner in our dojo, SafeSkills. I feel like we impacted so many lives teaching self-defense and martial arts. It was our life's work for all those years, and now I'm turning that energy toward art.


My art studio is at our home on a 10 acre property outside of Hillsborough, NC.  Our peaceful sanctuary is graced with winding trails, garden art and a rock-lined walking 7 circuit labyrinth. I periodically have Open Studio  ~ Open Garden Days by invitation.  Go to my contact page to be added to our list for an invitation.
