Katherine was raised in Rexburg, Idaho, the land of potato fields, chicken casseroles and boredom. Growing up the youngest of seven in a conservative community, the idea of being unashamedly open and embracing differences was a foreign concept. Luckily over time, her worldview was appropriately challenged. By the time she moved to Durham and attended her first Monti show in early 2019, she was eager to join a community that embraced sincerity. Her favorite thing about The Monti is its ability to be both a sacred and irreverent space where we can share our lovely imperfections and receive acceptance in return. In her free time, Katherine's a sucker for travel, the outdoors, a good spreadsheet, pizza, books, very small goats and all things lavender.
