Watercolor Teacher & Watercolor Artist founder of Keep The White Space®.
My name is Kathleen McElwaine, Central Texas Watercolor Artist and Teacher. In the Austin area I am known for my whimsical watercolor paintings, my watercolor classes, and as the Bus Paintings Lady. You can learn more about my life and my work at kmcelwaine.com.
I grew up on a small quarter horse ranch with a full-fledged cowboy Daddy. Much of my childhood was spent with my sketchbook in hand, in the front seat of a '54 Chevy pickup truck. Always front and center at the closest calf roping. Through the windshield of that old truck, I developed a love for the lay of the land, art, and animals.
My first art instructor taught me fundamentals, gave me an opportunity to practice different mediums, and told me about the importance of pursuing my own art in a signature style. Painting every day became a personal discipline.
My art is featured in The Bob Bullock Museum and other Texas-themed gift shops and online.
Thank you for shopping with me!
