Kate grew up two hours south of the Bridge in North Central Michigan. As a high schooler, I was a photographer for the yearbook staff, intending to be the next Margaret Bourke White. I worked across the country for a number of years in Outdoor Adventure Education eventually I relocated to Mankato, Minnesota for graduate work. While there, I pursued my Master's Degree and a teaching license in Art Education.
I am a sculptor. I use easily accessible materials to create contemporary forms. These forms are grounded in an organic sensibility interpreted with an element of transformation. I explore the philosophical constructs such as: being/becoming, existence/potential, ways of knowing, universality, and the lived experience.
My work often comes from a place of mind, body, and spirit.
I seek to create opportunities for the viewer to engage, experience, question, and explore one’s connection to self, the world, and humanity. As a catalyst my art can present ways for the viewer to explore the daily and breadth of life as well as a relationship to universal consciousness.
