Born in Berkeley, California, Katherine Gulla grew up in New York City. She lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts.  After studying painting, her early work evolved into video art and then documentary television. As a freelancer, she was a writer/producer of video and new media.  Her experience working with different technologies and industries helps her navigate non-traditional materials and techniques. Falling, a series of vinyl on aluminum panels is a recent example.
As a meditation on climate change, Falling is also an example of how Gulla’s longstanding connection between her work and nature takes on new meaning. In Flower Fruit, a diary of our temporal and spatial relationship to trees, she’s calling attention to these lungs of the earth. 
Gulla’s work has been shown widely throughout New England and New York.
