Kate played in many mediums during her lifetime, but in her final years she fell in love with Batik. She felt that it was a very special kind of creative collaboration with the medium of hot-wax, fabric, and colors. She spoke of how the creative process was unwieldy, as if the hot wax had a mind of its’ own and asked the artist to relinquish control and allow the flow to take over.

She left a large collection of her batiks with Prescott College in the Northern Arizona Mountain Town where she spent her final years. You can click the Batik Drop-Down Menu above to scroll through her various styles.
