Katherine graduated from San Jose State University with a BFA in Animation/Illustration. She was one of the few selected to direct an animation thesis that year, which went on to screen at film festivals such as LACMA's Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival. She has had many years of experience teaching children art, having taught at many summer camps in the past. She enjoys both traditional and digital forms of storytelling for art.
Katherine aspires for students to express their inner creativity and not to be afraid to convey their thoughts and feelings through art. She hopes to inspire her students to think about art in new ways as they learn and grow artistically.
