About Kat Gerdts:
Had Kat Gerdts known 30 years ago, she would have gone to design school. Instead she is a professional by day and her creative alter ego is limited to her home and friends’ projects. From covering walls with wall paper sample pages to light fixtures fashioned from copper tubing, she re-purposes items in fresh ways. “Working on my house and my art is my passion!” Canadian-born, she lives in Lake Zurich. Mosaic tesserae is her art-of-choice, from the purely decorative to fully functional, she loves to bring unexpected items a new life.
