About Me

Animals, landscapes, and humorous creations are what Kathleen Golter Roeth of tapestry316 enjoys painting, but she does have a passion for one subject.

“One of my favorite subjects to paint is horses. I have loved
art as long as I have loved horses and I cannot remember
a time when I was not passionate about both of them.”

I Want to Play!
Kathleen Golter Roeth is a graduate of Arizona State University, Class of 1974, with a BA in Art History.  She has also completed numerous studio art classes. Her ongoing art studies have included college classes, independent art classes, and workshops. This long time Arizona resident began drawing and painting at a very early age and continues her artistic journey today.

“Studying Art History taught me more about the creation
of art than all of the studio art classes I have ever taken.
By studying the great artists throughout time, I learned
techniques, art theory, composition, style, different media,
as well as  different philosophies related to the
‘why’ and ‘how’ of creating art."

Kathleen began working as a custom picture framer in 1972. After working for several custom picture frame shops in the Phoenix, Arizona area, as well as working independently as an artist and collectors’ doll maker, Kathleen moved to Chino Valley, Arizona.  Shortly after moving there, she began working for a custom picture framing shop in Prescott, Arizona, which she and her business partner eventually bought. For eleven years, Kathleen was co-owner of The Frame and I and The Art Store in Prescott. In 2009 she sold her part of the business to her business partner, who continues to own and manage it today. In 2014, Kathleen moved to Surprise, Arizona and now lives with her daughter, son-in-law, and five grandchildren, two cats, one dog, a horse, a pony, three alpacas, four goats, and a pretty flock of chickens - some who are definitely senior citizens.

Kathleen now works full time on her artwork (around family fun and animal care) and is in the process of illustrating a series of children’s books written by her daughter, Cynthia.

Having worked in a variety of media over the years, Kathleen primarily paints in watercolors now because she enjoys the spontaneity of this medium.

“The versatility of watercolor allows me to explore many
different subjects and to use both a very realistic technique
and a very free and abstract style.”

Above all, though, is the desire that Kathleen has to honor the Lord in all she does. Her artwork is inspired by the beauty of God’s creation and memories from her past. When confronted with the vast array of possible subject matter, she uses this Scripture to decide what to paint.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8
