Kate Ingold is a visual artist and poet working in a variety of media, from textiles made from recycled and new materials to stitched and etched drawings on digital photographs, sculptural, video and performative installation, and image/text collage. In her work, she examines issues of disturbance, reparation and collapse, and the nostalgia and regret that can accompany loss. Her chapbook, Dream of Water, was chosen by Harryette Mullen for the Poetry Society of America’s National Chapbook Fellowship and was published in 2008. Kate lives in Los Angeles and has exhibited her work nationally. (http://www.kateingold.com/FlatFile/)
