        Kathleen Arthur is an established American artist, writer, and transplanted southern belle. Her You Go, Girl project is a collection of anonymous women dressed to the hilt, often in vintage clothing and in contrast to the tasks they are performing. The figures are given double entendre titles denoting a wide range of personality characteristics seen in women. This collection is based on the historical paper doll concept where the clothes and accessories define the characters.

        Arthur began private art lessons at the young age of 6 and continued to study under Nationally known artist Margaret Hand. She then enjoyed a 30-year career as an Official Court Reporter in Federal and State Courts, during which time she reported over 4,000 trials verbatim, including a few notorious trials from which TV episodes and books have been written. She says that she's "heard it all" and that truth really is stranger than fiction.

        In 2017 Arthur decided to return to her much slower-paced art studio. She has written and illustrated two health-related books for children and one visual development book for babies. Her book "Horace Henway Raises A Stink" was a number one seller under the category of peer pressure on Amazon, and her book "Horace Henway Brushes It Off" was a Mom's Choice gold recipient. Her books have been distributed in underserved areas of Arizona, Title 1 schools, the Children's Museum of Phoenix and Tucson, and Boys and Girls Clubs across the state. Her alter ego is a gray-haired hand puppet she calls "My Southern Granny," who reads her children's books aloud. Her artwork has been called nostalgic and uplifting, and she says that she is motivated simply by watching people smile when viewing her art. In 2024 she began writing a collection of true stories about growing up in the Deep South, simultaneously creating a line of inspriational paintings called Jubilee combining expressionism with typography.

        She is a member of the Southern Arizona Arts Guild and the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance. She has received numerous awards for her art, and is currently represented by The Tucson Gallery and various retailers across the United States.
