Kathryn Oliver Drawn to Visual Storytelling


Kathryn Oliver discovered a passion for visual storytelling as a small child. Over time that passion has inspired her to venture into whatever media stir her imagination. Over the past decade, Oliver founded and served as artistic director and playwright for Terra Diddle Collective, a group of artists, actors, dancers, and musicians whose collaborative work produced original stage productions of archetypal storytelling through large puppetry, theater, and dance. She co-developed the concept and created the imagery for a multimedia performance called LEAP that combined projected images and dance with the poetry of the Sufi mystic, Rumi, and the Austrian poet, Rainer Maria Rilke. Now, after ten years of collaborative and often large-scale ventures, she has found her way back to activities more focused on solitude and inner exploration.




Drawn to the symbolic language of myth and archetypes, I am forever on a quest, seeking a visual narrative that evokes an internal recognition of nature — something in exile, lost, or hidden — yet leaves an impression inwardly known. 

Kathryn Oliver's work is featured in the spring 2015 issue of Stone Voices
