"Vera and Primo’s Pigs” by Kathryn Oliver


“The Wild Garden of Childhood” by Kathryn Oliver


Kathryn discovered a love for making pictures as a small child and developed a rich inner life of impressions. As she grew, creative aspirations led her to bring this inner world forward through art. Self taught, her creative journey has repeatedly taken her into the field of metaphor and myth as a way to express basic psychological ideas, of something eternal within ourselves. Kathryn first picked up a camera when she was sixteen and set up a darkroom in her house. She loved the immediacy of the image making process and the excitement that came from experimenting in the darkroom. Her professional arts background of painting, theater and dance feeds the work she does now as she blend hints of all these elements into her images. She currently creates and exhibit black and white fine art photography and photo encaustics, teaching workshops on the midcoast of Maine throughout the year.
