Kathryn Mapes Turner's artwork has unfolded from the mountain valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. From her family home at the Triangle X Ranch, Kathryn's consciousness of the natural world began. The happy synergy of a receptive spirit and a place of great beauty set her course. She began studying art in her teens from noted Jackson Hole painters. Her studies include the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C., a bachelor's degree from the University of Notre Dame, and a master's degree from the University of Virginia. She now paints and exhibits internationally, but seems to always return to her beloved Wyoming landscapes. In her ever-evolving work, she paints contemplations of the beauty she finds in the natural world.

In our experience, there exists a force which enlivens. Beyond self consciousness, I believe we are all connected in a fundamental way, to the essence of this force. When we encounter nature, art, truth and sublime beauty, our consciousness is reminded of this unifying fundamental nature. I strive to make images that evoke this remembrance by resonating with the part of our spirit that dwells in the eternal.
