Meet the Artist

Baltimore based textile artist Kat Jacobs began her art studies in childhood, initially focusing on pastels, watercolors, and charcoal. Kat’s current body of work, however, the symbiosis of natural textiles, evolved organically in 2016 as a fundamental therapeutic expression following the birth of her first child. Drawing inspiration from her own motherhood, her previous professional work as a birth doula, and her intimate relationship with the outdoors from several years spent in the mountains of western North Carolina, Kat’s current medium Invokes her earnest adoration of both the spiritual and natural world. Using foraged forest and shore elements, wool fiber materials humanely resourced around the world, and cruelty-free, naturally molted feathers sourced primarily from small hobby farmers and bird sanctuaries, Kat maintains the utmost commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical husbandry practices. Her purposefully worded descriptions and titles truly capture her desire to tap into the soul of each piece beneath its tactile properties. Tedious yet fluid, texturally dynamic yet simple, Kat’s work simultaneously evokes a semblance of tranquility and peace while also accepting and honoring the fragility of the human experience.
