Vermont visual artist Katie Runde was raised by Medievalist parents. This millennial with a Midas touch has been drawing as long as she was able to hold a crayon, playing saxophone since age eight, and theologizing since that day somewhere around age eleven when Mass stopped making neat story sense. An alum of the Eastman School of Music, she also holds a masters in religious studies from the University of Chicago Divinity School, a BA in folklore/ethnology and music from University College Cork in Ireland, and undertook two years’ apprenticeship with master realist painter Evan Wilson...and yet it seems it is her mother who is her most enduring and important mentor.
