local artist spotlight: Kathianne Sellers Williams

It is an absolute joy to introduce everyone to Kathianne Sellers Williams. Kathianne is a sweet friend who I knew immediately was my crafty soul-mate. She’s one of the founding Crafty Chicks and is an infinite inspiration for art projects and crafty, girly fun. She is one of the most original artists I have ever met and I just can’t say enough nice things about her, both as an artist and as a friend.

She is self-taught and specializes in mixed media collage.  Her work is influenced by things that bring her joy and inspiration: flowers and birds, words and quotes, fruits and vegetables, vintage finds, handmade gifts, hand-written letters, bright colors, and all things that sparkle.

Kathianne’s pieces (journals, wall art, and mason jar lids) include recycled materials of all kinds.  This includes wrapping paper, stationery, magazine images, travel brochures, or pages from old books as well as new fine papers from all over the world. Vintage stationery, dating from the 1930’s to 1970’s and inherited from her grandmother, is often incorporated into the collages.  You may find buttons, rhinestones, shells, and more. “I use whatever I come across that inspires me and can be glued down,” she says.

The collages are time and labor intensive.  Because of the extreme level of detail, you may notice something different with each observation.

“Creating collages nourishes my spirit” says Kathianne.  “I feel at peace when I am cutting out images, gluing them together, and adding the finishing details.  The process of creating allows me to express myself but simultaneously connects me to something bigger than myself.”

Kathianne currently resides in Atlanta and also works as dietitian and wellness coach.  Her artwork will be displayed At The Collective in Inman Park through April.  She also has plans to open at Etsy store in the near future.
