Katrin Jurati paints expressive text painting on draped silk, exhibiting nationally and internationally for over 20 years.  She co-founded Big Orbit Gallery in Buffalo and Deep Space Gallery NYC, organized the New Orleans Art Auction and Emotive Art Panel Discussion, taught at Cal Arts and hosts OAW Salon in LA.  Half Persian, half German, born in the Black Forest, Jurati's roots are nomadic with fantastical folktale, immersed in generations of woven textile.    Recent works connect painting with everyday touch.
