Kathryn is a textile artist and painter creating visual art pieces and projects with the mission of “art-for-all” and “peace-for-all”. Whether she is working directly with individuals or groups, or creating projects for the larger community, her work stems from the common desire to celebrate diversity and to resource self-expression and empowerment. Kathryn has worked with a large variety of communities—people with and without physical disabilities, middle class and poor, homeless and with home, in addiction and recovery, in prison and re-entry programs, seniors and young people. In 2010, with the support of the Mural Arts Program, Kathryn led weaving workshops at homeless shelters and public sites throughout Philadelphia and created a woven canvas for a mural entitled Finding Home. The project’s aim was to break down the issues and stigma around homelessness and bring people with and without a home together. Through working on the mural, the participants decided to continue weaving as Arts Street Textile Studio (ASTS), a studio, gallery, and boutique showcasing the works of individuals who identify as artists and artisans, many of whom are stigmatized because of being homeless or in transition. Kathryn's recent art-for-all textile work can be seen on chain-link fences on abandoned lots.
