Kathy is another person I had no clue as to who she was when I ‘friended’ her thru social media, I do recall I had seen her tagged in some interesting art-ish photos, and her comments attracted me to want more… Her comments on art I’ve found to be spot on at times, and at other times poetic and inspiring thought for days… As I research her for this intro, I found out she is an artist who has reached the top of the artist food chain, gallery owner and curator. heheeee.
Why ask her about underground art? Her blog made me think she understood underground from the top down, she got it from an educated point of view. she seems not born into the underground, but she wasn’t afraid to roll around in it either.
