From the first moment she was introduced to stone carving fifteen years ago, she felt a connection to and passion for stone. Kathi began her carving education at a Soapstone Carving workshop, followed by Alabaster carving courses at the Art Academy of Vancouver and now continues her education at various stone carving symposia including the West Coast Stone Sculpture Association (WCSA) symposium in Cowichan Lake and the North West Stone Sculptors’ Association (NWSSA) symposium in Mount Vernon, Washington. Kathi loves the vast spectrum of mineral content found in stones, that produces a variety of colours, bringing life to her work. The texture and tactile aspects of the medium guide her in letting the finished sculpture, be it animal or human (or neither), emerge from the stone, appearing in motion.
