This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kathy Buist, who grew up on a flower farm in Michigan, lives in New York City and has her studio in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.   She travels often in search of the unspoiled, natural vistas that inspire her abstract paintings of "water, mist, shores, fields and hills that transition gently into the ethereal skies that dominate her images."

Many of her subjects are inspired by her time spent on eastern Long Island and along the New Jersey shore.  Her subjects include the Montauk oceanfront and the woods, meadows, and country roads near Sag Harbor.

Her style, which might be described as romantic expressionism, is characterized by rich brush strokes and a bold use of color and is inspired by her admiration of George Inness (1825-1894).   Of her painting, which often is very large scale, she says:  . . ."there is nothing I love to do more than watch what nature does minute by minute."

Buist, encouraged by her mother, attended and earned a BFA from the Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Although she was painting continuously in the interim, it was twelve years later before she took more formal study, which was at the Vermont Studio Center and the New York Academy of Art.

Biography from Nabi Gallery:
Kathy Buist grew up amid nature and light and color--on a flower farm in Michigan--and nature is where she returns for inspiration and solace. Painting at a studio on the Jersey Shore, and on journeys to farther shores and mountains, she explores her vision of an ecstatic world where light and nature rule. The artist, who lives in the Gramercy area of Manhattan, has had over 50 solo and group shows in the New York region, New England, California, and the Midwest.
