Kathy is a fiber and jewelry artist and part time resident of Wisconsin's beautiful Madeline Island. She turned her attention to jewelry when she fell in love with metal fabrication the first time sh e picked up a torch. To Kathy, the process of metal fabrication and clothes desisgn are similar in that they resolve the same basic question; "how do you turn t his flat material into a dimensional wearable piece of art?". "I love the architecture of jewelry making. Tiny hinges and connectors which make things move about are as interesting to make as they are to wear. I don't make 'big jewelry, but my pieces have impact."
