Kat Knutsen is a multimedia artist with a background in fine art, animation, music, higher education, mural art, and community engagement. She worked on the ‘Loving Vincent’ project and designed the popular Jazz Mural located on Centre St in downtown New Bedford. She got her Masters in Fine art at UMass Dartmouth and is currently a professor at Bristol Community College. She runs a studio at Kilburn Mills where she regularly hosts figurative art and other types of creative sessions. In her down time over the last fifteen years Kat built a practice of creating wire-beaded jewelry to relax in between her other projects.

“I find joy in making wearable art. My journey into jewelry making began as a personal hobby. It has grown to become a source of stress relief, creative expression, and a fun challenge for building hand-eye coordination. I have always been drawn to the interplay of color, pattern, line, and silhouette. Creating jewelry allows me to explore these elements with a tactile approach. The process is very meditative.”
