Kit Kowalke lives in Kailua, on the island of Oahu.  She has recently retired from a professorship in Visual Design at Honolulu Community College (and she loves to draw).

Artist's statement:

Drawing is spontaneous, meditative, engrossing, engaging, and intense.
Drawing requires ideas, observation, measurement, intuition and interpretation.
Drawing plays with line, color, value, form, texture, shape, space, and relationships.
Drawing gives me freedom to create and pleasure in seeing…. It is a joy!
