Instructor bio: Katlyn Koester is a fiber artist, ceramicist, intuitive artist, watercolorist, and cat mama living in northern Wisconsin. She graduated from Viterbo University in 2010 with a BFA in Studio Art. Her art journey began at age twelve with the first piece of pottery she threw. Pottery was her main focus for nearly 18 years; she attended art shows and won 6 ribbons between 2012 and 2019.

In 2018, a Stage 2 breast cancer diagnosis and treatment led to a shift in mediums. After surgery, pottery was not an option physically and Koester leaned heavily on painting as her own personal therapy. In exploring new media, Koester also fell in love with fiber arts. You can often find her crocheting, spinning, weaving, or felting fantasy scenes and creatures.
