Beadweaving since 1997, Kathleen designs jewelry with a particular sensitivity to color, color blending, and wearability. As a teacher at the Center for Beadwork & Jewelry Arts in Nashville, TN, and as faculty on LearnToBead.net, she has taught bead weaving stitches based on a comprehensive design-oriented curriculum which includes the history, technique, and variations of a particular stitch for the past 7 years. Kathleen has appeared in Beadwork Magazine 4 times, Bead Trends, and Diane Fitzgerald’s Netted Bead Work. In 2011, she was a finalist in the Seed Bead Jewelry Making Contest sponsored by Fire Mountain. Kathleen is a Master Teaching Artist with the Wolf Trap “Early Learning Through The Arts” program, and workshop leader for the John F. Kennedy Center’s professional development for teachers program. She works closely with the Tennessee Arts Commission and The Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Her original designs are show-cased in The Open Window Gallery in Nashville, and at the Renaissance Center’s artisan market in Dickson, TN. Botanicals and the natural world continue to inspire her work.
