My Philosophy

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”   -Albert Einstein

My artistic vision is to express my love for what is through wonder, discovery, play, and celebration. The soul craves space for curiosity and imagination—timeless, limitless, and untethered to the frenetic constructs of the modern world. I create visual platforms to nurture this yearning. Through a blend of photography and graphic design, I offer the ordinary in unconventional ways. I elevate paper, plastic, shadows, petals, metal, and ice by transforming their structure, form, and scale. I capture and highlight the interplay between color, light, and space. I refine my vision for each artwork, carefully attending to the paths through which the eye and mind travel. My large-scale limited editions are dye-sublimated onto aluminum, offering a depth and level of saturation unequaled in traditional printing or painting methods.

The closer one looks, the more one may discover. Hidden within each artwork is a love note: wonder, hope, restore, extend, thrive... I offer these as a game of seek and find, another path to connect within oneself and my works. My mission is to raise the global psyche through my art.

My exuberant passion 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, my work as a graphic designer, and my enthusiasm for discovery. I am humbled and proud to pick up the torch carried by my inspirations: O’Keeffe, Dali, Matisse, Cassatt, Monet, Picasso, and Kandinsky. Each continued the conversation of what art is as they shared their artistic visions with the world.

I became a professional artist through my own doorway. The foundation of my artistic education is a combination of formal and informal training and I have a technical skill-set and penchant for learning that keeps me pushing further. My meditative side 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. ­

Love, Kate
