Katherine Horst resides in Manheim, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in the spring of 2009 with a bachelor's degree in fine art. Katherine's knowledge and experience with traditional techniques developed from the foundational skills she learned in the fine art program: drawing, oil painting and printmaking. Throughout her four years of training, Katherine had opportunities to not only learn in the classroom, but to travel to major cities to experience art in the many galleries and museums. The diversity she saw in the working art world as well as amongst her peers and professors has given her a wide range of artistic appreciation.
Katherine is now working with more experimental forms. She is currently using the medium of mixed media collage. She sees the toned paper and found scraps as brush marks on her surface. Each mark merges together to bring forth a landscape created by observation and imagination. The variety of weight and texture in her papers adds depth to the landscapes she forms on the layered surfaces. There is a lot of freedom in the genre of collage and she looks forward to her ever-changing process.
Katherine is a member of Harvest Bible Chapel of Lancaster where she is involved in the art ministry. She participates in the ministry's art exhibits as well as outreach events. By having a tight-knit group of encouraging and inspiring people, she is able to keep a creative spark within her faith. This circle of close friends and family is very important in Katherine's life—an anchor of support—as she continues to pursue her artistic career.
Katherine Horst has exhibited her collages both locally and across the country as part of solo and group shows. To view current and past exhibits, visit the exhibits page.
