SEATTLE, WASH. - Although she was raised 20 minutes outside of Seattle, Katie Anne Kurkjy grew up immersed in the rich art and music scene of the city. After studying sculpture and painting, she built her studio where she works today.

“My work is more inspired by the events of my life, and I express myself through their composition, using musical instruments as my chosen medium at the moment," said Katie. "I also take into consideration who gave me the instrument and what its previous life was before it found me”.
