Art has tightly held my heart since childhood and ultimately became a spiritual journey of learning to trust my inner voice.  My art making is always evolving, intuitive, soul nourishing and FUN.   My personal Mantra “ Look for Joy and Listen for Guidance” is embedded in my art practice.  My pieces are full of color and spirit, whether figurative or abstract.  I continue to learn and push myself  to create art that can inspire and uplift..  I am open to serendipity and chance both in art and life and trust that the unexpected can lead to amazing things.

For me the most exciting painting is the painting I haven’t yet made, those problems I haven’t yet solved. Making paintings, is a difficult proposition and I know that one really never learns how to paint. For me, each painting is a mistake, asking a question that points toward the possibility of the next painting. What I want for my paintings is that painting on the other side of Rembrandt’s easel, the one that has not been revealed. Almost four centuries his painting still asks questions about painting and the future of painting. The painting unseen. I want that!

Creative Director

 David has worked on film productions including award winning films like Carol, Judas and The Black Messiah, and action blockbusters like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Working on these productions David learned how to build specialized rigs for cameras and lighting. These skills have come in handy for our art practice as they boil down to how to make special equipment move safely and how to install heavy items. He brought this knowledge to Golden Brown along with management, production, and technical skills.

Having settled in Cincinnati 25 years ago after a lifetime of moving around the US from border to border and coast to coast, Kate is a retired college professor of English who has taken up a second career as a quilter, making miniature patchwork quilts for wall hangings and table runners. I have been inspired by the example of my maternal grandmother, Georgia, who also took up quilting in later life and who designed many of her own quilts, and by her mother, Pearle, who created many beautiful works in a variety of textile crafts-quilting, sewing, embroidery, crocheting, and lace-making.
