Artist Statement

Chasing Memory As a kid, my brother loved strawberry milk. I couldn't stand it. Why does the image stay with me after all these years? To evoke the feeling of chasing childhood memories during adulthood, I took photographs where I grew up on the East Coast and where I live now on the West Coast. When I reflect on the past, I do not hold onto specific facts or conversations. What I recall are the images, the way an object looked, its color, shape, and texture. Tangible objects trigger my memory; I can be standing in a corner store in California in the springtime and immediately be transported to my grandparents' home on North Charles Street, white with black shutters. As I move into a new phase of my life, I recognize a strong need to remember the past and record it, to somehow revisit and recreate my own reality. By doing this body of work, I am overcoming the fear that I will lose the pieces to an important time of my life. These photographs are a collage of moments that allow me the opportunity to re-enter my past, to follow and claim my own memory, to hold onto and shape it as I Iand more firmly in the present.

Katie was born in New York City, grew up in Baltimore, MD, and received a BA in art and photography from Guilford College. She began her career photographing the back roads of North Carolina, shooting in black and white. Her focus soon changed as she was motivated by the capacity of color and its ability to define an image. Katie's work is conceptual, with an emphasis on creating her own reality amidst ever-changing moments. Katie's photographs have been exhibited out west and back east. She also started a new business: Skylite Snowballs, a mobile food truck in the Oakland Bay... Read More
