At a time in their lives when most people are settling down, one St. John’s artist is speeding up.

At 95, Kathleen Knowling’s apartment is overflowing with her work and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Her work covers a wide range, from nature and portraits to sexuality in her older years.

Knowling has a history connected to the feminist movement, and remembers a time when becoming an female artist later in life often was seen as a hobby more than a passion that kept her from getting grants and other accolades.

But that hasn’t stopped the 95 year old, who hopes everyone can bring their own passion to their lives.
