Kathleen Yorba is a mixed-media artist, her interests are the study of her Latina genealogy, the idea of organic memory and the inner workings of what is fondly called the three-pound enigma (brain). Yorba delights in the novelty of discovery while furthering her ongoing exploration of memory and identity. Delicate materials and artistic brevity encourage rumination on “the illusive characteristics of memory,” and inspiration drawn from the observation of a beehive’s life cycle reflects the search for internal meaning in the world outside.

Kathleen Yorba is originally from La Junta, CO and currently lives and works in Arroyo Grande, CA. She received her M.F.A from Azusa Pacific University, Azusa, CA and her B.A. from the University La Verne, La Verne, CA. Yorba was selected for the Jentel Artist Residency Program in 2010. Most recently she has shown in exhibitions at the Pacific Arts League, Palo Alto, CA, Studio 5216, Los Angeles, CA, and 825 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
