Kathleen Black

Kathleen received a BFA degree at the University of Manitoba before studying various glass techniques at Red Deer College, Alberta. She works in a glassworking technique known as Pâte de Verre, which involves making a paste of crushed glass applied to a mould and then fired. This method gives her pieces a unique, multifaceted texture, perfect for reflecting light.

"I have worked at many things, from the fun of teaching swimming and first aid, the excitement of nursing in an Emergency Department, the joy of teaching art, community nursing, to the privilege of cancer care nursing. My images come from this intimate contact with people of all ages and backgrounds in health and crisis. I have a unique interest in the human body and the psyche's responses to life."
