"I see my art as the path to and product of creative solutions for the inevitable challenges of self expression. My mind scrambles over itself to find these elusive solutions. This is problem solving at its thorny best. It is both exhilarating and exhausting. I am both blessed and cursed. I wouldn’t have it any other way."
A native of the south, Katherine was born in Charlotte, North Carolina and spent her childhood in Georgia. At the tender age of 7, Katherine’s mother gave her a watercolor palette, and she began experimenting to see how many color variations she could create. The experimentation continues today.
Katherine’s interest in the arts grew as she did, excelling in music, sewing, drawing and painting during her high school years in Charlotte, NC. She went on to Hollins College to earn a BA degree.
However, her real education was a year at the Sorbonne in Paris. This opened up new avenues of European culture as did visits to England, Scandinavia, Russia, Germany, Romania, Greece, Turkey and Italy.
Katherine’s next chapter was a marriage to the man of her dreams and three above average male children. Though this championed most of her attention, she never ceased to create, always having a studio, no matter how small. Katherine lives in Wilmington, NC and is an avid gardener, lover of animals and keeper of chickens! She nurtures her work through her love of nature and its rhythms while continuing to joyously (most of the time) study, paint and sculpt. She shows work in galleries throughout North Carolina.
