Katheryn Fisher, more commonly known as ¡Katie B Funk!, earned her BFA from Saint Mary’s College in northern Indiana, concentrating in ceramics. During undergrad, she was able to gain gallery work experience on campus, as well as assist with the maintenance of various studios. Relocating to Columbus, Ohio, her MFA was earned right here at Columbus College of Art & Design, where her work shifted gears toward large-scale installation and photo-collage. During her graduate tenure, Katie was able to continue honing her gallery skills through the Graduate Assistant position, as well as craft her classroom skills as a Teaching Assistant that merited a Certificate in College Art Instruction upon graduation. Katie was also CCAD’s first graduate student to become a Resident Advisor in campus housing, earning the peer-nominated award “Resident Advisor of the Year” in Design Square Apartments.
