Kathleen Broaderick has just published a new book, The Artist’s Virtues, which gives inspiration to those who wish to become an artist by offering a unique reference guide to becoming a successful artist.

The author, Kathleen Broaderick, was a hobby artist for decades before becoming an award-winning fine artist and art instructor. She draws upon this self-knowledge and the evolving nature she sees in her students to offer the reader the traits and qualities that lend themselves to each of the 4 stages she feels one goes through in evolving as an artist. She feels the study of art is two-fold. While it primarily helps to develop the necessary technical skills one needs, it also leads to a life-enriching joy of a more than ordinary existence.
