Kathryn Hunter is a fine artist in South Louisiana. She works in mixed media: paper cutting, relief printing, wool & silk, embroidery, steel, letterpress, drawing, and wax. She is inspired by the color in Wes Anderson's films and the animals on the Gulf Coast and in the Western Mountains.
She earned a BFA in printmaking from Montana State University, Bozeman in 1999 and an MFA in printmaking from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge in 2003. In 2003, she started Blackbird Letterpress which specializes in quirky animal stationery, handmade notebooks and cards, and invitations, with a focus on good craftsmanship and good design.

Her work has been commissioned by Clarkson Potter (a division of Penguin Random House), Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, Norton Simon Museum of Art, Los Angeles, and Historic New Orleans Collection.
