Biography Katina Huston

Bay Area Visual Artist Katina Huston was born in San Francisco in 1961 and raised in the city.

In 1984 she earned a B.A. from New York University, Washington Square University and College in the History of Fine Arts. The artist then earned an MFA in 1995 followed by teaching Art and Art History at California State University, California College of the Arts and St Mary’s College to name a few.

Ms. Huston’s works are exhibited nationally and internationally and held in collections both private; Dolby Studios, Chase International, Allan Chasanoff, and public; Clay Museum of Art and Science, San Francisco Fine Arts Museum, Achenbach Collection and Yale University Art Gallery.

“She has piled up shadows… that wink with recognizable details but finally force the eye to surrender to their sheer graphic brilliance.” – Kenneth Baker, 2005
