Author Bio
Kathy Thaden's study of fine arts and degree in commercial art led her to a career in broadcast design. For 25 years, Kathy worked as television art director, animator, and graphic designer - winning numerous honors for design, including seven Emmy Awards. Seeking something more tactile, Kathy's creativity now comes through her mosaic art. She lives and works in Colorado where her husband is an Episcopal priest. Kathy weaves her passion for modern mosaics together with reflections on God’s gift of creativity during her popular Mosaics as Meditation retreats and workshops.“Working with broken stone or glass is transforming as pieces are changed, made whole again. Finding beauty in brokenness, I treasure discards from our ‘throw-away’ consumer culture. It’s important that nothing be wasted,” says Thaden.A full-time studio artist, Kathy's mosaics range from abstract sculpture and landscapes to liturgical wall hangings and commissioned works. She is a professional member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists, Episcopal Church & Visual Arts, and founding member and Past-President of Colorado Mosaic Artists.www.thadenmosaics.com
