"To me, life is like a jigsaw puzzle and each new day we're given a new piece to complete it, to complete ourselves. It is our job to find the pieces (things) in life that make us absolutely happy and to follow those dreams and wishes we have for ourselves. Painting is the latest puzzle piece I have found. It compliments me quite wonderfully."

As one viewer puts it quite nicely, "Her spirit shines throughout her painting and refreshes the soul of the viewer". Kathryn Hegarty was born in Valentine, Nebraska in 1982.
