Meet the Creator

Kunath’s work is fuelled by the tension between her thirst for solitude and hunger for connection. Creating self-reflective work that explores communication and various forms of connection, Kunath says ‘Relationship is my greatest teacher,’ and it is also her greatest inspiration. Examining her relationship to herself, her community, and her environment, she makes works that are meditative responses to those connections. Her studio works are primarily on paper and canvas, and her murals can be found in the US, Mexico, Panama and Nicaragua.

Travel plays an important role in her creative process, and it’s become her favorite tool for accessing fresh approaches and inspiration. Each new destination offers a chance to relate to both herself and her work in a different way, often resulting in notable shifts in her style and palette.
