Artist Bio

Katie Gresham (b. 1987, Virginia, USA) is a multimedia visual artist living outside of Washington, D.C. Her artwork has been exhibited at local galleries, including Falls Church Arts and Rhizome DC. Gresham’s work has also been shown in online exhibitions, including the Woman Made Gallery, Roaring Artist Gallery, Brandi Hofer Gallery, and Art in the Time of Corona. Gresham was a contributor to Lenka Clayton’s Mothers’ Day collaborative project and book, which was displayed at the University of New Mexico Art Museum and The Arts Club of Chicago. Gresham’s embroidery and collage works explore the inherent tension in caregiving within a society that provides insufficient support to and holds unrealistic expectations of mothers. She seeks to validate the complicated and often suppressed emotions and burdens of mothering and assert the value of a more honest conversation about the needs and values of caregivers.
