Kathleen Trenchard

Kathleen Trenchard has researched and worked in traditional Mexican papel picado (punched paper) ever since the early ‘90s when she was introduced to the technique in Huixcolotla, Mexico. Her work explores contemporary designs, applications and materials suitable for cut work using hammer and chisel. Trenchard has had many solo and group exhibits and teaches design, painting, drawing and art appreciation in and around San Antonio, TX.

Kathleen Trenchard is featured in the Holiday episode of Craft in America.
