Kate Kaplan‘s jewelry making was inspired by her daughter Winter’s interest in gemstones and minerals. Kate began taking Winter to the Charlotte Gem and Mineral Club. In 2003, Kate won a class at William Holland Lapidary School through the club, and has taken a class every summer since then. Kate’s current work shows a touch of whimsy, and consists of copper, dichroic glass, and enamel, specializing in hair accessories.
Mixed Media Paintings
My name is Courtney Mohr. I have received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania. Also while working on my undergraduate degree, I received a certification to teach Art K-12. I worked in education for a few years teaching art to elementary and middle school students in North Carolina. Although now that I am no longer a teacher, I have been continuing to explore art.
MohrArts4You was created to have the world be aware of my own artwork. Teaching art has inspired my own exploration of mediums to work with and styles to create beyond just demonstrating those of current or past artists.
My artwork involves a lot of mixture of mediums such as drawing and painting. I normally start out with a blank canvas, wood, or surface to work from. Then after creating a composition with paint, I use charcoal to add more details and accentuate sections of the piece. Mainly I do not work off from representational things, however, I do not limit myself to not including such things as animals, nature, or people. Simplicity of forms of nature, geometric shapes and lines drive my inspiration. The aesthetic that nature, shapes, lines, and certain colors bring to the table feeds into the drive of my inspiration.
