ABOUT ME

Going out into the forests and fields, harvesting materials from nature, and sitting down in the sun to weave a basket is my idea of a perfect day! As an artist my passion is create art with all natural materials that I harvest and prepare from the beautiful landscape around my home. As an educator I guide adults and children alike in connecting to their creative self through the combination of art and nature. I have a background in Fibers Art from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and a BFA in Printmaking from SUNY New Paltz and I currently exhibit work regionally in galleries and teach nature and art workshops throughout the Hudson Valley. If you are interested in purchasing work, scheduling a workshop, or have any questions then please email me at KatieGroveStudios@gmail.com
