Katrinka Booth was born in South Central Missouri and raised in Bentonville Arkansas. Her influences include her family, her love of textiles, her years spent as a seamstress of couture clothing, and the landscapes and terrain of Arkansas and the surrounding areas.
Her art began as a relentless recurring dream of her stitching a wallflower on her simple sewing machine. The dream didn’t stop until she stitched her first piece.
Each piece of art teaches her something about the next one to come.
Katrinka expresses the elation and freedom she experiences stitching these detailed, Elaborate pieces. She hopes the viewer is transported to another place, where time is suspended and you can “be free in your wildness.”
Much of her work is accomplished using fabric and thread on a humble domestic sewing machine in a free hand style.
Recently she shelved her art practice to make over 2,000 masks, and has invented a new method of embroidery involving yarn as paint on a canvas, having dubbed it “Neo-Embroidery”.
