Katharina Nuss has a B.F.A. Honours from the University of Manitoba and worked as a Graphic Designer until she became a full time parent to three energetic children. Doing most of her creative work on the computer never felt quite right, as she is drawn to more immediate creative processes such as printmaking, carving, sewing and knitting. She loves to make things that are both functional and beautiful, starting with relatively simple and often found or recycled materials. Texture and pattern feature prominently in her art, and she enjoys techniques that involve cutting away at a material to expose something beautiful within.
