Open Studio Artist

Kathleen Botsford

Chicago, United States

I am a mixed media artist and jewelry designer living outside the beautiful city of Chicago. I love to travel and I am the eternal student, forever devouring books and media on whatever new passion has captured my imagination. My inspiration for art organically arises from these varied interests such as Ancient cultures, the mystery schools, and the ever-present enchantment of our natural world.

My favorite medium is:

Acylics of all sorts.

The best place to create my work is:

In my studio surrounded by my altar, my books, my art and pictures of my family.

I am most inspired by:

The Divine Feminine and nature with a little bit of current topics and politics thrown in for good measure.

The craziest thing I've ever done to create an art piece was:

Well, I've gone out on a limb making art about secular topics which cause much discussion and disagreement. I have a 36 x 36 I did for the Me Too movement and I love to make pieces about one of my heroes, RBG.

I'm currently working on:

Spray painting my own version of graffiti

I collect:

Artifacts. I am also a jewelry designer and my pieces are made with tons of artifacts I have collected all over the world. I have people I work with and I have found many on my travels. I have mammoth tusks, and ancient talismans buried with warriors on the battle fields. I collect artifacts from all religions and I once had archeologist tell me my collection should be in a museum.

"I have always been the consummate student; history, art and the religions of the world have intrigued me since I was a child. I have been deeply committed to the Divine Feminine and how She appears in religion, art and history over the centuries. Nature has also been a great teacher to me and a constant inspiration. I never thought I was creative at all. I never took an art class in school. When my children were small, we made all of our gifts. My inner critic took a holiday as I cut and pasted, colored and painted, beaded and collaged with my toddlers. We are ALL creative. We have just lost sight of our unique gifts due to society's pressures and judgements. It is my mission to help women re-ignite the dormant joys of childhood creating. No critics allowed!!!"
