Bio

Working intuitively, Kate allows the subject matter to dictate the materials.  Art making provides her with perspective, and affords her the time to process the events in her life as the work progresses.  Kate’s work playfully crafts sardonic metaphors for the female experience, including domesticity and motherhood.  She is constantly experimenting with new media and honing her creative processes.  Her interests include comics, Renaissance faires, geocaching, petting zoos, and spending summers in Port Loring, Ontario with family.  She lives in NJ with her husband, daughter, and their furry, four-legged babies.
