Kathleen Velo is a photographic artist who uses non-traditional media, such as camera-less processes as well as pinhole and plastic cameras, in her photographic work. Her recent projects examine the quality and transience of water in a desert environment, through the creation of color photograms under the surface of water at night. As a process driven artist, Kathleen explores techniques that enhance and complement the concept of her images. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally, and her work is in numerous public and private collections. She has received various project grants for her work, including Artist Project Grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the U.S. State Department in London, and the Fulbright Commission. Kathleen holds an MFA from Vermont College, an MA from the University of Arizona, and is a Fulbright Alumna.
