Kathryn Anderson is an artist and printmaker living in Tacoma, Washington, USA. Classically trained in the visual arts, Kathryn studied at The Art Students League in Manhattan, New York, and was a Fine Arts Printmaking major at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
Her highly detailed work strives to capture the beauty, mystery, and imagery that moves her spirit. She is most inspired by our natural world, and many of her works show the influence of her gardening, birdwatching, and excursions into the wild. She is captivated by the small details of the beauty she sees around her. By really studying her subjects, be they flora, fauna, or the human form, she feels that she better understands their essence and knows them more deeply.
Kathryn’s work focuses mainly on printmaking, specifically linocut and etching. The process of printmaking is a very old hands-on process, from the concept and drawing through the carving of the linoleum, or the very process-heavy method of preparing, etching, and individually printing the copper plate by hand. This work is her passion.
