Kathryn is an artist, fashionista, quilter, cook, baker, gardener and storyteller. Her whimsical quilts combine fashion and quilting along with her passions and are a celebration and exploration of women and femininity. Commercial fabric is her paint; thread is her ink and the sewing machine her pen. Her quilts have a strong connection to traditional quilting making in their construction.
Long limbed, knobby kneed fashionistas that invoke fashion illustration make up her Word Salad, Fashionistas and Girlfriends series. Her newest series of life size and larger Angry Women is how she expresses her views and feelings about issues that are important to her.
Kathryn was featured on three segments of Quilting Arts TV in 2019 and is the subject of Quilting the Odd & Unusual feature in the Spring 2019 Issue of Art Quilting Studio. She is also featured in in Art Quilt Quarterly, Issue #17 (October 2019), Artists to Watch.
She is a Juried Artist member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Association), has a Certificate in Fashion Design and has been sewing ever since she could thread a needle. Kathryn is the coauthor of Backart -- On the Flip Side and working on her next book, Word Salad, Girlfriends and Fashionistas.
