…Kate’s interests eventually turned to a more architectural aesthetic. She recently completed a program at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. While there, she became interested in and inspired by the idea of creating interactive art, large pieces that could be both beautiful and useful. Concepts that could be an enhancement of landscaping or living areas while embracing true function. Her initial project design Etazin, inspired by the Japanese moon gate is now a permanent installation at Taliesin West. The most recent Etazin Square incarnation has been added to the collection at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa in Gainey Village.
