She graduated from Penn State University back in the late 80's with a major in English- Creative Writing/ minor in Art.

She has done many projects with Mural Arts Philadelphia and other organizations over the years with folks of all ages and backgrounds.
Kathryn exhibits locally, nationally and internationally, and has work in private and public collections. Via Mural Arts Philadelphia's Porch Light Initiative at The Kensington Storefront in Philadelphia, Kathryn and colleague, Lisa Kelley, co-created an art/craft-making 'sanctuary studio' workshop series called Tuesday Tea & Textiles. Working with folks in active addiction, they believe that creating an environment of belonging, meaning and purpose is a critical piece in any 'recovery model' (not to mention in life and community!) as the nation scrambles for solutions during an epidemic of addiction and despair. Art as Harm Reduction! For many years, and still, she makes yarn 'shags'/ art-for-all pieces on chain link fences for neighborhoods, often overlooked. Kathryn has received numerous grants including The Leeway Foundation's Transformation Award. Her work has been featured on the cover of AMERICAN CRAFT and in many other publications.
