As the founder of the Atomic Classroom, Kate is its primary teacher. She has taught arts and crafts in many settings, from boarding schools to church basements and now in a moving art playground of her very own. When Kate isn't making art inside of the Atomic Classroom, she is running the Bowdoinham Public Library, or helping a family grow through adoption. She has one husband, two children, three exchange student "daughters" in Ukraine, and one rescue dog.
Kate discovered this vintage Overlander International Land Yacht in the yard of a neighbor. Sitting unmoved and unused since the early 80's Kate dubbed the trailer "Mossy" and convinced the owner to give it another lease on life and a new use. Kate refurbished Mossy over a span of three years, with the help of many friends. She received financial support from an Indiegogo campaign as well as a Rebel Blend Artist Grant from Coffee By Design
