Kathy Blankley Roman
Chicago, Illinois

Born and raised in Chicago, Kathy Blankley Roman has been making art of one kind or another as far back as she can remember. Her preference for an earthy palette reflects a connection she felt as a child to the prehistoric cave art of Lascaux. With a background in calligraphy and illustration, Kathy’s art took an entirely new direction in 2010 when she started painting abstract work and studying with arts educator and author, Steven Aimone. Kathy’s paintings have appeared in juried and small group shows nationally and online.

Comments About This Piece

"Being There" evokes childhood memories of the dunes in Michigan where my family visited every year. The painting is built up in many layers and scraped to reveal colors that lie beneath. This piece is made of oil paint and cold wax medium. It is painted on a cradled wood panel with finished dark grey edges. It comes ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
