Episode 21: Kat Renee//Painter, Story Teller & Theologian Expressing Universal Truths Through Ragged Dolls (And So Much More) Monastic Mamas

Kat Renee is an artist working out of her home, most recently located outside Dallas, Texas. With a BA in Art and an MA in Theology, Kat Renee has studied a wide range of subjects, all of which inform her artwork. She began a career as a commercial artist, but in an effort to create more meaningful art, left commercial work to focus on a personal project: a collection of paintings dedicated to the transcription of real-life experiences into visual stories. Using rag dolls as characters in these stories, she depicts each scene with specific detail and careful symbolism. Kat Renee has participated in several group shows in southern California, and is excited at the opportunity to expand to other cities. She views her art as an opportunity to understand 'truths' hidden in human circumstances and universal in human experience. In the words of John Lennon, "My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel." In this episode, Katie and I sit down to talk about ALOT … from the history of art in the church, to art as prophetic vehicle, the need to create messy middle spaces for artists of faith, why the church would do well to engage with and invite artists into sacred space and the wide breadth of the human experience artists encompass in their work. And SO. MUCH. MORE. This episode was particularly fun for me as Katie and I have been friends for over 15 years and recently reconnected around this idea of artists in the faith space and how art and spirituality are so deeply connected. You can engage with Katie, her work and her beautiful Ragged Doll series at http://www.katrenee.com or https://www.talesofaraggeddoll.com. You can also find her on Instagram @katreneestudio.
