Katie Heater

Katie Heater received her BFA in Print Media from University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2009, and is currently pursuing her MFA at UMBC as well. With her background in printmaking, she creates visual stories through precise line work and mark making. Stylistically, she is interested in techniques, processes, and equipment that can be characterized as outdated. She often uses found imagery and materials to create new pieces that reference the original significance of the objects and its connotation in today's world. Most recently, Katie is interested in mail art and making hand made paper out of unconventional and stolen objects.

Katie is currently the Graduate Assistant for commonvision: UMBC Design and Print Center, working closely to manage the undergraduate student staff, managing The Commons Gallery Spaces, and assisting in Art Week and The Commons Arts Program.
