My pieces tell stories. They tell of storms weathered and turbulent whitewater navigated. I collect things while I am wandering in wilderness, seduced by the cast off flora generously littering the ground beneath my feet. They are scored with lines and scars depicting their histories and hinting to aspects of the primitive environment we deprive ourselves of. They are a part of the natural cycle, undisturbed and unprotected, and I aim to highlight their undulations and ornate subtleties. Each piece in my series evokes the place where it was found and what I was doing there. Their presence alone serves as a sketchbook, or journal, of where I have been and what I have seen.
From downtown Greenville, take S Main to Pendleton St. Turn right onto Pendleton St and cross Academy St into the Village of West Greenville. Turn right on Irvine Street, then right onto Perry Avenue. The studio is just past West Greenville Baptist Church on the right. Kate Furman Studio is located in the back building.
