About the artist
Katherine’s love of art and science began at an early age. As a child, her collections of insects, feathers, and seashells were matched only by an equally large collection of art supplies; however, it didn’t occur to her for many years that these two passions might be combined.
While studying art at Mills College in Oakland, California, Katherine began taking classes in science illustration. She was instantly drawn to the precise and studied approach to art; that, along with the chance to rekindle her love of the natural world, was what initially attracted Katherine to science illustration.
Katherine is recently completed in the master's certification program for science illustration at California State University Monterey Bay.
