KATY HIRSCHFELD Work
"I grew up in NJ and spent a lot of time in NYC. I took art lessons when I was barely entering grade school with a family friend named Judy Lewis. One day I Laid my artwork against a wall assuming it was dry, the next day we discovered that the paint had ran down the whole canvas. I revel in what Lewis called “A Beautiful Mistake”. An error that I embraced, Became enamored with, and pragmatically infuse in most of my art work. Later I went to school at the George Washington University in Washington, DC where I studied anything but art. It wasn't until after I graduated that I rediscovered and pursued my passion for creating. I moved to Austin in 2012and then to Miami in 2015 to seek more positive inspirations, soaking in new lives and totally different environments. The idea of doing something that goes against the normal grain of society and that also reflects creativity and individuality, while encouraging a DIY nature, is a great inspiration to me. I look forward to where my art takes me, it sort of has a mind of its own."
