Katherine England

I make art because it makes me happy. It is that simple. I make art because I believe it does the same for people who see it. I especially enjoy large installations that hundreds or thousands of people get to see every day. My goal is to give them a momentary transformation while looking at the colors and movement. A momentary diversion and hopefully a new more playful mood as they move on. My training is in literature so symbolism and magical realism is a reoccurring theme in most of my installations and smaller works. I enjoy working with community. Sometimes in the design or actual construction of a piece. But I also love having my own private journey that becomes part of the community after completion. I love using a plethora of tessarae and materials to create unique quilts of textures that can captivate from afar and intrigue when viewed up close. I also want my work to appeal to a range of ages and to be relevant and attractive now as well as 100 years from now. No easy feat….just part of the fun.
