Katrina Rodabaugh is an artist, writer, and crafter. Put simply: She makes things. And these things often include textiles, poetry, printmaking, and photography. She’s created large-scale art installations and organized collaborations with dozens of artists from various disciplines—poets, dancers, visual artists, and musicians.
She received her MFA in Creative Writing/ Poetry from Mills College where she worked as a teaching assistant in the Book Arts Studio. Her writing, artwork, and designs have appeared in galleries, special collections, theaters, and journals including the San Francisco Center for the Book, Columbia College Chicago Center for Book & Paper Arts, The University of Alabama W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library, The Bing Stanford in Washington Art Gallery, Z Space, CounterPULSE, Theater Artaud, There, Refueled, InDance, thepressgang, and a forthcoming issue of Viz. Inter-Arts. She was a writer-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center and received artist grants from The Puffin Foundation and the Zellerbach Family Foundation. You can also find her work at pop-up galleries, boutiques, indie craft fairs like Renegade and Second Storie, and at her Etsy shop, "Made by Katrina".
Katrina worked in galleries, theaters, and various nonprofit arts organizations for over twelve years until early 2012 when she turned her focus to artmaking and mothering her newborn son. Originally from a small town in western New York she currently lives in Oakland, CA with her husband, son, and their tiny urban garden. She dreams of someday owning a farmhouse, renovating a barn into art studios, and tending to chickens and bees.
