After teaching art for 35 years, Kathy Grundei retired so that she could spend more time with her artistic interests and family. Having taught in schools in the west suburbs of Minneapolis, retirement also meant more time in the Alexandria area where she and her husband have had a lake home over 30 years. The past four years Kathy has had a studio and gallery on County Road 42 and Three Havens Drive. She has an art degree from St. Cloud State University, MEd from Hamline University and has continued art studies through Twin City art centers, artist-teachers and mentors. Her areas of interest are watercolor, book arts, collage and mixed media.
