This week we are joined by artist Kate Windley and her son Leo. Kate was born in the agricultural region of northeastern North Carolina. She grew up in a small coastal community located on the Pamlico Sound. For her undergraduate degree she attended two different universities: Appalachian State University and East Carolina University, where she received her B.F.A. in Painting and Drawing. Professor Windley received her M.F.A. from the University of Georgia in Painting and Drawing and has exhibited works at the International Print Center, The Anderson, and Berry College as well as working in partnership with the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation.
Her art focuses on the connections between the expressive qualities of drawing along with the repetition and use of a matrix in screen printing. She is currently making her art and raising her son, Leo, in Athens, Georgia.
