Growing up along the coast of Maine, Kat Kiernan has always had an interest in all things nautical. She received her BFA in photography from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2011. Dedicated to the art of storytelling, she has exhibited photographic narratives in Maine and Boston. Her writings have been featured in numerous publications. She currently resides in Lexington, VA where she is the Owner and Director of The Kiernan Gallery. Kat does all her own stunts, and finds it awkward writing about herself in the third person.
