Artist Bio

I have been an artist as soon as I had pen in hand…
I won my first art award at 9 years of age from R.I.F. the Nation’s
leading literacy program (Reading is Fundamental) – entitled “Find
your Fantasy.” I have tried to stay with that theme, creating fantasy
worlds in my art capturing imagery that otherwise could only be
pictured in your dreams.
I have since delved into many mediums of art from glass work,
photography, computer graphics, painting, sculpting, to writing. I
have published work since my late teens including 4 anthologies and
writing still 3 books including a children’s tale. I have shown in galleries
and museums since the 80’s and have won awards, scholarships and
certifications regularly for my work.
This year the Latino Art Museum in Pomona’s Artist Colony awarded
by the city of Pomona for my Artistic Contribution.
I just wrapped up a yearlong exhibit: “Gilded Wings” 30 Years-30
Pieces in Palm Springs. My site: www.kattworks.com has my latest
series of work; Drawings, photography, paintings, sculpture and
computer graphics are all part of the collection.
I have 3 benches in Palm Springs I have painted for the beautiful people of the desert adding to their infamous city art.
For the last 5 years I’ve been teaching art and guiding the hands of
creation. I teach methods, various mediums and art history opening
up the full scope of the art world to my students focusing on their
personal strengths.
I participated as a muralist with my piece, “Butterfly Skies” in Los
Angeles’ “Mural Row” on the 101 Hollywood FWY where many artists
have adorned the city with their work seen my millions weekly.
My art has been covered in many books, magazines and
newspapers, where editorials have encompassed my work. The Sun
Newspaper dedicated their entire Living Section front page to me
highlighting my work and featured my Mural work. I was also named
“Artist of the Year” by Inland Empire Magazine where four full pages
focused on my own Art Style “Kattmopsheres”.
This March 2020 my art made the cover of ‘Arts of Poetry’ Magazine
along with several of my art pieces highlighted and featured poetry.
I have been guest Judge in Museums and Art Association exhibits and
sat at the board of directors for the Fine Art’s Institute at the County
Museum. I was Art Director for IONA and VOWS magazines where I
advertised my work and created various design lines working with
models and fashion directors.
Inspired by Morganne Picard and her influence in the art world,
I created her infamous image from Greg Gorman’s photo for
l.a.Eyeworks that now is on display in Hollywood 2020.
I have my own studio, Kattworks, where I exhibit my work regularly
and freelance for many clients in many fields. My clientele ranges
from businesses, Politian’s, educational boards, celebrities to
My greatest creation is my son Drake, my true masterpiece. He is my
true muse and I look forward to creating new works through his eyes
and inspiration.

What kind of public art project do I want to work on?

I was part of L.A.’s Mural Row on the 101 FWY for decades for millions of viewers, I painted life size dogs for 101 Art Bark in the Park for Riverside, I teach art and head up the Mural Group in Real Journey Academy empowering children to lead art designs and I have painted benches for the beautiful city of Palm Springs adding to their wonderful city art.
