Being raised 20 minutes outside of Seattle, WA, Katherine (Katie) Anne Kurkjy grew up immersed in the rich art and music scene of the city. After studying sculpture and painting at Cornish College of the Arts, located in Seattle, she built her studio, where she currently works today.
Katie creates her unique sculpture that both challenges the mind's concept of an object, and breathes new life into broken and discarded instruments. She acquires her material from local musicians, exhibits her work in galleries and music venues, and contributes to local charity auctions. She takes on public and private commissions and has created large scale installations as well as work live at music festivals.
