Artist Statement & Bio
Kate Eggleston is a mixed media artist who uses found objects, textiles, and homespun techniques to create caricatures of her personal experiences. Her latest obsession with indigo dye and shibori, a series of Japanese resist dye techniques, are slowly seeping into all aspects of her practice. Dyeing fabric by hand using shibori techniques feeds her need for process and control in her art making.
Eggleston received her BA in Visual Art from Ramapo College of NJ in 2005, as well as her K-12 NJ Art Teacher Certification. She attended artist residencies at _gaia studio (Wonder Women 9: Superfood) in 2015 and the Tyler School of Art at Temple University (Summer Sculpture Intensive) in 2012, and completed the Creative Capital Blended Learning Professional Development Program for NJ Artists in 2016. Eggleston frequently shows her work and teaches art throughout the state with concentrations in Trenton, Jersey City, Newark, and Monmouth County. She lives and works in New Jersey with her family.
