A brief interview with 2016 Open Studio Tour artist: Kathy Strauss


Kathy Strauss in her studio.

Can you tell us a little bit about the work that you do in your studio?
I am a fiber artist and printmaker, and my work is largely informed by my other career as a laboratory scientist. Recently I have been making block prints embroidered with structures related to the printed image, along with monotypes layered with mathematics that describe the image.

What drew you to the medium(s) that you are currently working with?

I love the immediacy of monotypes, and I love making block prints and then seeing how many variations on each of the same print I can make by the addition of embroidery.
