Katie Duane is an essayist who also loves to write the occasional poem, a teacher of the arts and yoga, and an endlessly curious learner. She is a lover of many things, including but not limited to: painting, lyric essays, the cosmos, books, trees, ocean waves, coffee in bed, yoga, travel, hiking, anatomy, dance (especially salsa and bachata!), horses, surprises, and the Spanish language.
Since 2008, Katie has worked primarily as a teacher of the visual arts. She has taught in Portland, Oregon, Guayaquil, Ecuador, Rochester, New York, and has recently relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. She’s excited about what’s next–and looks forward to continuing to figure out how to fuse together her love for the arts, writing, travel, wellness, nature, science, and social justice.
