Katherine Taylor

In 2015 I moved to Austin, Texas where my husband and I, our 2 cats, and 7 chickens started working hard to rehabilitate an old house in South Austin. This life change was an abrupt pause to my art making, until I returned to making my sculptures and pots at Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos, Texas. When I wasn’t working at the studio, chasing termites out of the house, or cleaning up chicken poop, I was working with the contractors to build my own studio in my backyard. In the Spring of 2018, we finally finished the studio, and I am currently working hard to make friends with my new space. I earned my BFA from Texas A&M University – Commerce in 1998, my MFA from Syracuse University in 2002, and was a participant at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2002. Artist residencies include the Snake Kiln Culture Park in Shui-Li, Taiwan in 2006, Liv I leire in Oslo, Norway in 2009, Tainan National University of the Arts in Tainan, Taiwan in 2013, and Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge, Montana in 2019. I moved around the country teaching at universities, colleges, and art studios, and my work has been included in exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
