    Professional Artist and Instructor

    The mystery of Mother Nature, the cosmos and human nature have fascinated Katherine since she was very young. Over the years, she has explored many mediums to represent them and their intertwining relationships. One of her favorite mediums to express these relationships is egg tempera. It began when she walked into a classroom redolent with the smell of incense, musical chant, and the presence an elderly, bearded, Russian gentleman who spoke very little English that she felt a medium would do justice to her vision of the mystery of the universe. That first class dove her headfirst into the ancient technique of egg tempera and iconography, which for centuries has been taught by master to student.

    In addition to personal and commissioned work, Katherine loves to teach people from all backgrounds the technique of egg tempera.
