Born in 1978 in Manchester, Connecticut, Katie Caron now lives in Lafayette and works in Denver, Colorado. She is presently Assistant Professor of Fine Arts & Arts Education. Caron graduated from Boston University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in English Education and minor in Theater Arts. After graduation, she decided to pursue her art fulltime and moved to Colorado. In 2007, Caron was accepted to the graduate program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan and graduated with a MFA in Ceramics. While teaching at the Cranbrook Art Institute in 2009, a 900-lb. wall collapsed on Caron, crushing her spine and pelvis. During the recovery period, Caron created two bodies of work documenting her experience: Mending Series and Heartland Drawings. A short time after her last surgery in 2010, Caron started working on Apoptosis in collaboration with Martha Russo for the Denver Art Museum’s exhibition Overthrown: Clay Without Limits. Caron is a resident artist at Redline Art Space in Denver, and exhibits her work nationally. Check out her website for more information.
