Katie Kendrick lives along the banks of the Tahuya River in western Washington. Surrounded by the Tahuya State Forest, the peaceful beauty of 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 painting with others and teaches mixed media workshops across the U.S. and internationally. Her first book, “Layered Impressions: A Mixed-Media Approach to Painting and Poetry” was released in 2012.
