Katherine Daniels

Blue and Orange Blossoms
glass, pencil, and watercolor on paper

Katherine Daniels work explores the archetypal ideals of a garden in paradise through her sculptures, installations and public art.  
Ms. Daniels uses repurposed items, recycled materials, sewing notions, and fabric with traditional craft techniques such as weaving, sewing, and beading to create her body of work. 
These paradisiacal gardens represent the human need to counter our acts of destruction by creating and cultivating beauty.

Katherine Daniels is currently exhibiting work in Bronx Calling at the Bronx Museum and Flow 11 on Randall's Island.
She is currently working in a chashama in Harlem and has also been awarded AIM 30 participation at the Bronx Museum, a PS. 122 Project Studio, an Artist-in-Residency at the Henry Street Settlement, a Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation The Space Program grant and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Painting. She holds a B.F.A. in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and a M.F.A. in Painting from Johnson State College.
