On the Art of Nature & the Nature of Art
Hi there! I'm Kathy Partridge, a professional artist, and I want to thank you for stopping by. White Pines Whisper is about life both inside and out of the studio. My work is an expression of my love for nature and animals, and this blog is a natural extension of that.
