Kailua Village Artists Featured
Artist in March is Kathleen Jaeger

Kathleen Jaeger introduces pen and ink drawings and an expanded offering of hand-painted glassware, in addition to showing new acrylic and mosaic work during her month as the Featured Artist at the Kailua Village Artists Gallery in March.

Her work with pen and ink on paper has evolved into detailed images of local themes from our Island found on land, sea and air. She uses either a pointillism or a cross-hatch method to create the shadings in these drawings. She frequently starts the piece by drawing a grid behind which she places her image.

Kathleen uses glassware as the canvas upon which to paint her unique designs. The slick curved surface gives this medium its own unique challenges. Kathleen uses paints specifically formulated for work on glass and then sets it with heat, resulting in a permanent bond.

When working in mosaic, Kathleen uses primarily stained glass as her tesserae as she creates both wall pieces and three-dimensional work. This past year Kathleen's mosaic work has evolved to include larger scale pieces. She will be showcasing one of these, a Honu Triptych. Kathleen also enjoys the challenge of working on unusual supports for her work, using discards from friends and family and finding ways to bring beauty and sometimes even a new function into their existence.

Painting with acrylics gives her the opportunity to work in a more spontaneous way than is possible with her other mediums, resulting in vibrant colors and playful images. It has been said of her work that “They make me happy!”

Except for a few note cards, no reproductions of Kathleen's work are made; when a theme is being revisited, each piece is a unique original with its own personality.
