Kathy Suprenant grew up in the Village of Hudson Falls in the Town of Kingsbury, New York, a few miles from the southern entrance to the Adirondack State Park.
After receiving a PhD in Biology from the University of Virginia, Kathy moved to southern California to complete her training as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She moved to Lawrence, Kansas in 1984.
Recently, Kathy retired from the University of Kansas where she was a faculty member in the Department of Molecular Biosciences for over 30 years.
Kathy learned the art and craft of quiltmaking by taking classes offered by local quilt shops and quilt guilds. She no longer makes traditional quilts and instead creates her own designs for smaller art quilts, textiles and paper constructions.
