Kat Ryalls

Artist + Kat Ryalls

I create because I am compelled to - it has been the tilt of my life since I was a child, though back then it was an experience in working with what was around me - arranging leaves and twigs, collecting and observing rocks, feathers, shells, and fabric scraps.

I create art with a focus on the process while responding to and revealing the different ways I experience the world around me. It encompasses the thoughts in my head, the emotions I experience, and the places I love to visit and explore.

Over a decade ago I packed up my life and my car for a new adventure. New Orleans was supposed to be a brief stop on my way out west, but falling in love with New Orleans can change your plans and your life, and it has been my home since. I still take a long escape to the west that calls me for inspiration and altitude. At heart, I am a North Carolina girl, born and raised there in the woods; the kind that is well acquainted with rivers and trees and says things like y’all. I received my degree in studio art with a concentration in painting from Elon University in 2003.

Contact me if you are in New Orleans and would like to see my artwork in person - I am happy to coordinate and make that happen.

Kat Ryalls is a New Orleans artist living and working in the Bayou St. John neighborhood.
