Kate Bryant - Artist and Art Educator
Kate Bryant is working on her M.A. in Art Education at the Ohio State University. She'll be completing her program this summer (congrats!).
As part of my Master's thesis project, I am working on a series of watercolor paintings as part of a visual narrative that documents experiences dealing with chronic illness. My narrative weaves in two distinct perspectives at the time of a family member's diagnosis. I am also exploring how the artmaking process itself can model how a person responds to illness symptoms and that the process can lead to self discovery and greater understanding of chronic illness for others.
