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 and textile arts. She loves to make things that are both functional and beautiful. Homegrown and foraged plant materials, as well as reclaimed and recycled items, feature prominently in her work, and she loves the back and forth of a creative process in which next steps are informed by the unique characteristics of plant materials, and the place and season they were harvested.
