Katie Kendrick lives along the banks of the Tahuya River in western Washington, surrounded by the Tahuya State Forest. The peaceful beauty of the nature that surrounds her is a constant source of inspiration and nourishment for her creative spirit. She finds art making to be one of the most powerful ways to connect with her innermost essence, while at the same time discovering her authentic voice. She enjoys the experimental and intuitive layers of creating, where she can explore inner and outer worlds simultaneously. She has a passion for sharing her love of creating with others, and teaches mixed media workshops across the U.S. Her work has been featured twice in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine as well as several recently published books including True Vision; Authentic Art Journaling by L.K.Ludwig, Mixed-Media Self-Portraits by Cate Coulacos-Prato, 1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn Sokol, and Exhibition 36: Mixed Media Demonstrations + Explorations by Susan Tuttle. Her book, “Layered Impressions: A Mixed-Media Approach to Painting and Poetry” was released in 2012.
