Winter doesn’t have to be dark and gray.  Come explore the color and wonder of the aurora borealis with Katherine as she shares with us her journeys of the past five years seeking the elusive, magical Northern Lights.  Her travels have taken her from Alaska, across Canada, to Norway and Iceland, always during the winter months.  Through her award-winning images, Katherine’s tales of her arctic travels will convey some of the challenges, joys and surprises she encountered, letting you enjoy the beauty of the aurora without having to stay up all night or dress for minus 30 degrees.

Katherine has worked as a banker and as a lawyer, but she has been happiest since leaving those professions and pursuing photography full-time several years ago.  Since then, she has won awards and participated in juried shows.  She focuses on creating images of nature, human cultures and abstracts, and loves any excuse to share her work with others
