Art making began when Kate was a child. She is contually exploring, facisnated by nature and the many manifestations of beauty, strength, and power that nature has the power to show us. Her studio practice is fueled by the fascination with the natural landscape as a means in which to communicate and articulate ideas of wild, raw, organic, mystic, spiritual, sacred. She hopes to convey the mystery and beauty that is human nature.
The work is personal, symbolic, and part of her own path of healing and growth.
Along the way, Kate has shown in galleries and museums nationally, and internationally in group shows with other artists, art collectives, and independantly. She graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 2012 and has since managed and worked with several print shops and art organizations such as Drive By Press (Nashville, TN), Hanger 18 (Oakland, CA), Non-Grata (Estonia), Self Help Graphics (LA, CA), SFCB (SF,CA), Art Students League of Denver, as well as touring colleges with Drive By Press sharing the love of printmaking and conducting workshops and artist lectures.
Kate is a teacher and artist living in Berkeley, CA.
