Kate Rannells

Kate Rannells is a sculptor who lives & makes art in Oakland. She is fascinated with the macrocosmic & the microcosmic, from the pattern of exploding stars to the vast maps of information inside our own heads. She recreates and iterates her passions using paint, wax, found & natural objects, hoping to inspire a sense of wonder in others.
