Kathy grew up in Macon, Georgia. She has a bachelor’s degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. She has received awards for her work, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for painting, and a Knight Neighborhood Challenge Grant for sculpture from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, administered through the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.
Her work focuses on questions of perception, the phenomenological and experiential aspects of landscape rooted in both lived experience and the imagination. Attention is paid to spatial types and what they might engender rather than to rational spatial concepts in an attempt to express the more indiscernible moments of an enmeshed experience visually. Sensations brought about by both the smaller and the larger realizations, perceptions, oscillations, are referenced and translated in a primarily instinctive manner, formally responding to both the experience of place and the act of mark-making as each is considered.
Kathy is represented by Clayton Galleries in Tampa, Florida. She currently lives and works in Sarasota, Florida.
