About Our Art
Katherine Ehlmann is a Surface Design, Fiber Artist living is St. Charles County, Missouri. Her initial work with fabric began in eighth grade where she started sewing as a creative endeavor. She could not express her individuality with commercial fabrics so the next natural progression was to design her own fabrics. In 1991 she took a workshop on hand dyed Shibori and from then on this media became her passion. She has been creating Wearable Art, Wall Art and Accessories for 25 Years. Katherine uses a variety of techniques such as dyeing, stamping, clamping, printing and stitching to create colorful images on blank fabric. When she has a specific use in mind, her designs are planned in detail, sometimes the serendipity of the process gives her direction.
Her latest endeavor is to use a fiber backed foil in conjunction with her fiber to make 3D Sculptures and Wall Art.
Katherine is a member of Surface Design Association, Missouri Fiber Artists, St. Charles County Arts Council, St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre, and Juried member of Best of Missouri Hands.
Her work has been displayed at various Missouri Fiber Artists Member Shows, Framations Art Gallery, Clayton Fine Arts Gallery, Lillian Yahn Gallery, Capitol Arts, St. Charles Community College, Mildred M. Cox Gallery, and Lambert St. Louis International Airport.
Katherine’s scarves are on display at Bluestem Missouri Crafts in Columbia, Mo.
