In her work, K employs printmaking, mixed media and sculpture to explore the fluid, paradoxical, and trickster nature of memory and perception. ‘Memory is what we forget with.’

“I find it curious that we can have such a fixed notion of who we are, how we know ourselves and the world around us. However, possibility- along with its companion, creativity- reside in the crevices and fissures of the moments and spaces where we let go of this stasis and certainty; where we sift and knead the dense, often incongruent, layers of experience and personal archeology.”

Her sculpture and mixed media work have been shown regionally and nationally, and she continues the rewarding practice of the exchange portfolio, both here and abroad. Her two most recent exhibitions included a solo exhibition, Falling Away, at the Centennial Celebration at her undergraduate alma mater [May 28- Aug 2, 2013] and a three-person exhibition she organized, “Mark by Mark,” at the Alice Gallery in Salt Lake City, UT. [March 14- May 9, 2014]

Stevenson has been teaching at WSU since 2001. This academic year her teaching emphasis transitions from Art Education to Printmaking.
