A pandemic is a fine time to read all the books on our wish lists. Never one to follow the crowd, Garlands member and artist Kathleen L. McCann took advantage of these past several months to write one! The Art of Kathleen L. McCann showcases many of Kathleen’s favorite or most meaningful paintings and the stories behind them.
As a young woman, Kathleen set off alone for England and France to study mural painting, a skill on which she built her career. Kathleen’s murals and paintings fill the walls of corporations and homes all over Chicagoland. 2020 forced her to turn inward and concentrate her energies on illustrating how the diverse influences in her life (Catholic education, a beloved grandmother and children) influenced her art so she could write her beautiful book.
Kathleen is currently putting the finishing touches on her story, after which Garlands members will be invited to a book launch, reception, and signing!
