About the Artist

 

Hello! I am Kathy Klompas

I love color. I love pattern. I love process. I love mark-making. I love making art to share.

Primarily, I create with monotype, making one-of-a-kind painterly prints on paper and fabric. Sometimes I venture off in to collage or other mixed-media techniques, often influenced by my love of textiles and surface design.

In college, I studied Textile and Costume Design, my bread & butter was in a variety of executive retail positions. Printmaking became a passionate way to stay grounded and exuberantly color outside the lines while navigating the workaday world. Now I play at my studio, ragged Edge Printmaking Studio, as much as I like! I love creating this work. I love teaching and sharing my joy of connecting freely while exploring color and composition.

Art to Wear by Kathy Klompas

My signature handprinted silk scarves are all one of a kind, using a painterly monoprint technique.

I hope they bring the wearer as much joy as I took in creating them.

As a printmaker, I work on both paper and fabric. Modern digital technology allows me to manipulate my original art and have yardages printed from these patterns. The vibrant, flowing kimono jacket, “Bodacious Cabbage” began as monotypes printed on paper with dye. It is stitched from a silky polyester chiffon, beautiful soft drape makes it easy to wear.
