About the Artist

Kathy specializes in wheel-thrown and hand-built functional pottery. She’s also an abstract painter working in watercolors and acrylics. Kathy enjoys the tactile quality of clay. Each of her pieces begs to be picked up and explored. Similarly, her paintings are meant to draw the viewer in through shapes and colors. Kathy invites her audience “to pass beyond imagined barriers and explore what is beneath.” Because of her works’ inviting qualities, Kathy’s ceramics and paintings are favorites among collectors.

Kathy has been exhibiting her work nationally since 1992. Before settling in Minnesota, she established an independent ceramic studio in Alexandria, VA. She’s honed her artistry at workshops and through study projects over the years, notably at Colorado’s Anderson Ranch, the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C., and in University of Wisconsin-River Falls master seminars with Ken Matsuzaki and Warren MacKenzie.
