Katherine Kean is a painter who works at the intersections of order and chaos in the natural world. She skillfully uses observation, memory and interpretation to translate her love of nature's kinetic phenomena into paintings that capture the often turbulent emotions within light, weather and landscapes. Her imagery of winds, storms and volcanoes is at once evocative of emotions as well as metaphor for a state of mind. She has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States.
