Artist Profile: Kathy York

Kathy York

1.  Describe your signature style in 5 words:
fun, colorful, flat, graphic, story telling,

2.  Do you ever work in another medium and, if so, what is it and what appeals to you about it? 
No, unless you count cooking and gardening.  :)

3.  What's coming up for you in your artistic world?
I am looking forward to spending the summer making some new work to submit to Quilt National.

4.  Do you have any studio rituals?
I always start with coffee and facebook.  Then I get to work.

5.  Who has inspired you on your artistic journey? I lean heavily on the QuiltArt listserv and the SAQA listserv for inspiration and support.  So many wonderful artists to follow!

6.  What are the 5 essential things in your studio that you cannot live without?
My Juki sewing machine, my iron, a tephlon sheet, design wall, and my Ott floor light.

7.  What is on your design table right now?
I have the layout of a new modern quilt for the Michael Miller fabric challenge.
8.  How do you juggle your artistic life, family, friends, etc?
Family and friends come first.  I like getting my work done early so that deadlines don't sneak up on me.   
9.  Do you have any studio companions (human or otherwise)?
I have three cats and a kitten.  The kitten does not always get free access....depending on his behaviors.

10.  What was the biggest challenge in creating your piece for Reflections?
I tried some new techniques, including shaving foam and monoprinting, and they all gave me headaches.  I am used to having more success in my intentions and experiments, such was not the case with this one!
