Kathryn Elliot Duncan, has been involved with art materials for more than 20 years. To Kathryn, the most thrilling part of working with materials is drawing on this knowledge to “solve” artists’ dilemmas when trying to create a specific effect.
In 2011 she started Art Workout, a company devoted to art education and inspiration for artists of all ages and experience levels.
In the Golden Working Artist Program, Kathryn has spent years developing an array of acrylic techniques to keep pace with the amazing body of information and product depth available at Golden.
