K. M. McWhorter
K. M. McWhorter was raised in Mobile, Alabama. She graduated from the
University of Alabama earning a B.S. in Biology and Math and began work in
medical research at UAB. She now lives in Decatur, Alabama with her
husband, Robert, and a series of haughty cats.
In 1970, McWhorter fell in love with the lettering arts and in 1996 became
interested in adding color and dimension to her work. She then moved to
exploring layers in her pieces using color, lettering and German Schlag leaf in
various hues. Currently her profoundly personal abstract and realistic
watercolors reflect her joy in the world of nature without words or letters as she
loses herself in color.
The award winning work of K.M. McWhorter can be found in Huntsville,
Alabama, at the Huntsville Art League at Lowe Mill and in Decatur at Kathleen’s
Fine Art Gallery. McWhorter’s work has been published and juried into shows
around the Southeast and is part of collections as far away as Taiwan. She has
also been awarded Silver Signature Member status in the Watercolor Society of
All artwork used by permission of the artist. All rights reserved.
