About the artist
A native of Maryland currently living in the Towson area, Kas Rohm energetically embraces the dynamic transparency that only watercolor offers. She seeks fresh composition, responding to the simultaneous momentum and stillness of subjects from her environment, often infusing whimsy into her paintings. Watercolor is beautifully fluid and presents as both versatile and challenging, lending itself gracefully to realism as well as to impressionistic studies.

Where to find me--
September 26, 2023 (Tuesday), 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.: Join me at Manor Mill Gallery in Monkton, MD, for another watercolor workshop titled "Queen Anne's Lace with Bleed Proof White." Queen Anne’s Lace is a beautiful subject for enhancing a watercolor painting with an opaque medium. In this workshop, we’ll use Bleed Proof White Fine Art Paint over our watercolor washed paper to create vibrant splashes of white lace flowers. We’ll add stems and leaves to complete our composition and enliven our colors with oil pastels. All materials provided, including wine! Register at Queen Anne's Lace Workshop
November 12, 2023 (Sunday), 10:00 - 11:30 a.m., Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton. Interested in some scrappy watercolor fun? In this workshop, we’ll use a mop watercolor brush to splash abstract shapes onto our paper and use our imagination to craft those “ink blot” shapes into stylized human and animal figures. Then we’ll add realism and perspective by striking shadows across the paper. We’ll also experiment with splattering paint onto paper and creatively crafting those droplets into beautiful fields of flowers. Bring along your favorite morning beverage! Register at:
December 3, 2023 (Sunday), 10:00-11:30 a.m. "Brunch and Brushes," Manor Mill Gallery. Come join me on this December 3 Sunday morning for a light brunch around the watercolor table! We’ll brunch while we brush golden yellow and brown watercolor paint into artistic croissants and cinnamon toast (with real cinnamon!) on our paper. Bring your own coffee if you like, and Mimosas, coissants, and jazz music ambience will be provided. No experience needed, ages 13+.
