Kathy Wininger is a new face to the Valley arts scene, having recently located here from the Midwest.
A self-taught artist, Kathy has over the years experimented in numerous mediums including abstract painting, altered art, bead weaving, cyanotypes, and encaustics. It wasn’t until a few years ago that she took her first class from a local silversmith that she found her true passion.

The process of creating has always intrigued her, starting with the idea in her mind’s eye to seeing that vision come to life her hands.
Silversmithing allows her to step inside this creative process to see the raw material transformed in her hands.
In her home studio she creates her statement pieces out of primarily sterling silver sheet metal and wire. Through a process of sawing, filing, shaping, texturing and polishing each piece comes to life.
Her minimalist statement pieces have clean lines that are accentuated by various stones, gems, textures and patinas.
