Background

As a multidisciplinary contemporary artist, I straddle two worlds. I work at the cutting edge of technology with pixels and atoms, and as primitively as cave people, sliding liquid around with my hands.

The link between is simple:  ME    

My eyes, mind, and body explore with both media. I am curious and active as I work. I capture and highlight the interplay between color, light, and space when working with ink and photgraphy. The dominant lines that carry through each piece have my esthetic, like fingerprints or handwriting. 

As a child, I frequently roamed the halls of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I had my favorite stops along the way where I would stand nose to canvas with brushstrokes made by gifted artists long ago. Each artist's work recognizable by details within the style of their marks. Stepping back, I would let each work come into view, tiny details blending with the ones around to create each masterpiece. I have carried this game with me and pass it on to my viewers. I challenge you to interact with my art. Get up close- inches away and really look. What do you see?

I am proud to pick up the torch carried by my inspirations: O’Keeffe, Dali, Matisse, Cassatt, Monet, Picasso, and Kandinsky. Each adding their singular voice to the conversation of what art is through their bravery and experimentation, sharing their visions with the world-unafraid of exploring what could be.

My exuberance for life fuels my artistic vision and impacts my work. My art is influenced by my love of nature and fine art, my years spent as an educator and as a graphic designer. I have a penchant for learning that pushes me further and a meditative side that balances this tenacity. I am a seeker, driven to share my love of the world with the world and it thrills me to create a tangible place in which others can explore. ­

I maintain my studio in Edgewood, Rhode Island.

Love, Kate
