Profile: Kathryn (Kate) MacDonald



Writer, photographer, sketcher, and workshop facilitator

Artist statement:

I’m interested in capturing the essence of things in each art form. Words and images are like mirrors inviting viewers to discover their personal relationship with the image/author. Each poem, each story, each photograph and sketch is an invitation.
