Artist Showcase - Kathryn Leventhal-Arnold


My passion is taking a flat static piece of metal and hammering, folding, or twisting it before using enamels to add color. Whether through the design created by the play of light through colored enamels on metal or through actual twists and textures, each piece provides a dance of light and movement.

My designs are inspired by nature and dreams: from the celebration of flowers and trees, to dreams of dragons, fantastic worlds, and flying like a ribbon or leaf on the wind. Whether realistic or abstract, each piece I create contains my belief in the endless possibilities and new opportunities presented to us every day. I believe in each of us is the freedom to work for our dreams.

As you use my work in your own life, I hope you will carry that shared sense of freedom and endless possibilities with you every day.

Sitting in front of a computer for over 20 years as a technical writer and project manager has driven me to search out movement and texture. I appreciate opportunities to engage in the world away from text on a flat screen.

Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in Bloomfield, Connecticut, I have lived in Saint Louis, Missouri since 1985.
