I took my first class with Kathyanne in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2007 when I was just completing photography school. Prior to the class, I spoke with her to let her know I didn't journal or put things together, I just wanted to learn to print my photography on unique substrates! Through the years, participating in the membership site as well as taking several classes, she has challenged my creative juices to experiment, to step out of the box and ask, "why not?" Her trailblazing into the unknown has provided many opportunities for me to experiment and experience wonder and aha moments. The step by step instructions coupled with the resource sharing have opened my creative spirits and I love her work!
Kathyanne has magically guided me into a world I only dreamed of: one where I am able to combine my love of fabrics, textures, and handmade papers with the printing of my fine art photography. If you've ever wanted the confidence to soar . . . her expert guidance and passionate playfulness is genius!
I have been fortunate to have worked beside and studied with a wide range of photographers and artists. Kathyanne White is unique among them, with a unique skill set and a visionary approach to her imaginative work. Her ability to conceptualize out of the box (no pun intended…her metal boxes are exquisite) and then create new and different combinations of media to produce unique substrates and finished products distinguishes her among her peers who attempt similar work. Kathyanne is also unique in her ability to share information and collaborate to generate new ideas, and in the process is always completely unselfish and gives her students the full, detailed recipe and hands-on help to develop a final product. Her book will open doors and be a valuable resource to all who enjoy the fascinating realm of imaging on alternative substrates and working with composited materials and images.
KathyAnne White is the Battery Bunny of digital printing. Her energy, which literally does keep her going when everyone else has run out of steam, is coupled with a creative imagination that has made her an expert in digital printing. Her willingness to share that knowledge, in a most generous and highly entertaining way, means she is the one you need to go to if you want to learn how to print on a thousand and one surfaces.
Kathyanne White gives a whole new meaning to the art of photography. Her creations, some of them huge, evoke moods and feelings based on snippets of this and snippets of that rather than individual images of single subjects. The colors evoked by hundreds of little images of autumn leaves and bark, for instance, printed on Lutradur or aluminum cans and laced together with mesh, and wire and cloth come together in a tapestry of warmth and peaceful feelings. If you attend one of Kathyanne's workshops, prepare to get messy, to smear acrylic paint on window screen or tissue paper or to sandwich bits of the forest between layers of plastic bags or to tape a bunch of cut open and flattened aluminum cans to a stiff piece of paper. Then coat the acrylic skins or plastic bags or aluminum cans with InkAid, and while it's drying, dig up one of your own photographs, or several that you have collaged digitally, hold your breath and print the image on one of the oh-so-nifty skins or papers or whatever you want to call your creative sandwich. You're going to be amazed at what you can create with Kathyanne helping you sprout. Here's Kathyanne's secret - "…create with reckless abandon…" and she does just that. If Kathyanne thinks she can get it through her printer and if she can bend it, cut it up, lace it together or mold it into a sculptural whatzit, you can bet she will. Kathyanne is the consummate master of the alternative surface.
