SELECTED ARTIST: KATHRYN DURST
First Friday Ptbo is very pleased to announce that the mural selection committee has chosen local artist Kathryn Durst’s proposal for FF’s first mural project. “Kathryn is a graduate of Sheridan College and has a background in animation and currently works as a children’s book illustrator. She has illustrated many books including the NYT-bestselling children’s book Hey Grandude! by Sir Paul McCartney. When she is not making the drawings for picture books, she may be found playing the accordion, growing vegetables, painting murals and making pickles. She lives in Peterborough with her dog Chili.” To view more of Kathryn’s work, check out @kathryndurst on Instagram or visit www.kathryndurst.com.
Congratulations Kathryn, and a very deep thanks again to all 20 artists who applied with thoughtful, inspired proposals.
