Hathaway’s paintings celebrate unique, tranquil landscapes that invite the viewer into the painting. She has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and painting since she was 13. She earned a BA in Studio Art and a Minor in Education in 1982 from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.

A Midwest native, she has lived in the Bay Shore, New Jersey area with her husband and two children since the Spring of 2000, teaching art to children and adults, as well as exhibiting her art at galleries in the area. Hathaway switched from oil painting to acrylic as a medium after becoming a mother.

“Necessity is the mother of invention and becoming a mother is what necessitated my change from oils to acrylics. My studio is a small corner of my living room in my small house, and since children and oils don’t mix, I developed a style of painting in acrylic that allows me to achieve the quality I want in my work. I’m continually amazed at its versatility, and I’ve had a great deal of success with acrylics. Even though I may go back to oils again for the occasional painting, I’m very happy painting in acrylics.”
