Kathie Odom Works

Kathie Odom

First and foremost, Kathie’s art-journey has been laced with great encouragement from family,

friends, fellow artists and collectors. Her lifelong desire to create has also been fueled by an

ever-present attraction to things of God, childhood memories of her family in the building

trade, and a high school art teacher that uncovered Kathie’s love for beauty and her capacity

for a variety of artistic mediums.



After graduating from The University of Tennessee in Art Education and Fine Arts, Kathie

received early recognition for pastel works. But it was 2009 when she found a home in painting

oils en plein air.



I call myself a “Nostalgic Impressionist” as a way of identifying the subjects and style of painting

that interest me most. Also I am really passionate about plein air painting and allow myself to

get lost in the wonderful process of it all!



Kathie resides with her husband and maintains a studio in Knoxville, Tennessee. She travels

extensively and spends much of her time oil painting in the great outdoors. Also, teaching

workshops and participating in plein air events occupies much of her calendar. Kathie’s original

works have sold internationally and she is quite proud of her fine art gallery representation.
