KATE PETERSON - THE DAPPER JACKALOPE
Boise, ID - Years in BAM Art in the Park: 5
A self-taught artist living and working in Boise, Idaho, I love making art that gets us all thinking like kids again. As I see it, my primary job as an artist is to inspire delight and wonder with glass-half-full illustrations that turn down the realism knob and ask “what if?” on the page. (It’s an awesome job.) I use a wide variety of media to get the job done, from colored pencil to watercolor, acrylic, and some digital media, and I often combine illustrated elements made using different materials into original collages.
