Katelyn Patton

Katelyn Patton is an interdisciplinary artist whose current practice combines painting and embroidery to create works that exist in both fields. The fabrics, threads, and embellishments used are salvaged and repurposed as a way to limit her consumption of new materials and help alleviate her uneasiness of contributing to systems harmful to the environment. Her process is heavily influenced by fashion, nature, and the cycles and symbols found in both. She received her BFA in Painting from Indiana University. She has had solo exhibitions in Chicago at the Lillstreet Arts Center, Harold Washington Library, and the Storefront Gallery at the Whistler. Her work has been included in shows at the Woman Made Gallery, Trestle Gallery, and Ground Level Platform. Most recently she attended the Visitor Center Artist Camp residency on art and ecology in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
