KATHERINE KAISER is an abstract painter and drawer who is driven by the act of drawing, mark making and repetition. The energetic marks that she produces document the past and present. Each mark is associated with a different energy from a specific emotion. Kaiser starts each drawing making marks that are isolated from each other and individual. However, as her drawing process continues the marks start to speak to each other forming their own connections, a dialogue within the composition. Katherine considers these marks to be her own unique visual language, a statement representing her own journey through time. Katherine was born and raised on Long Island and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art with a minor in Art History at Providence College in Rhode Island. She is currently pursuing her Master of Fine Arts degree at Stony Brook University where she taught an undergraduate foundations studio course. Katherine is also a teacher at a privately owned art studio on Long Island where she teaches ceramics and mixed media.
