Although Kate and Tricia grew up two states apart in some ways the seeds of this gallery were sown in their childhoods, where for both them the arts played a critical role in their development and understanding of the world around them.

As adults, Kate chose the path of an artist and Tricia chose the non-profit world where the arts played a major role. Both raised some amazing kids while at the same time creating and spreading art along the way.

It was fate that brought them together as a family over 20 years ago and it was their inspiration, determination and a mutual belief that art makes the world a better place that encouraged them to create The Golden Thread in 2012.   With a strong belief that art can transform people, communities and the world Kate and Tricia continue to spread their message that art matters.
