Working with natural resources and repurposed materials to create complex multi-dimensional pieces, Katherine refers to her art as “organic.” It’s contemporary while retaining traditions inspired by her Elders. Incorporating stories in her art making–each piece conveys a spirit of connection and transformation relating to a feeling or place. She has a B.A. degree in Arts and Literature.
