The Lines Around and Behind Everything

Kathryn Kert Green was born in Los Angeles in 1952 and grew up in Beverly Hills. Her mother was a writer of fiction and biography and her father was a cardiologist. Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptualism, other non-isms, Ellsworth Kelly’s shapes, and Mid-century and French Modernism influenced her work with internal structure, balance, proportion, hope, optimism, the desire to not necessarily go along with the crowd, questioning, stripping away the nonessential clutter to get to the essence, where the real meaning is.

After studying Russian and East European Studies at the University of Michigan, she earned a M.A. in Secondary Education program at Stanford University. After teaching and a contented motherhood, Kathryn took up her drawings she makes in her home studio today.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Bless you!
