Katherine Ray Hanover is an interdisciplinary artist and designer with an interest in delivering creative narratives through a variety of digital mediums. Her work as an artist includes solo and collaborative projects, three-dimensional environments and animations, two-dimensional digital animations, web-based media, and graphic design pieces that focus on the interplay between text and image. Just as media and technology are constantly changing, Hanover describes her artwork as being in a state of perpetual flux. The subject matter and her approach in creating novel works is continuously evolving. Inspiration for her work derives from the history and relationship between art and technology, personal experiences, and her surroundings. Hanover aspires to develop works that are immersive and inviting, while encouraging the viewer to engage with concepts beyond that of the piece presented.
As a Bay Area native, living so close to San Francisco has exposed Hanover to the city’s diverse way of thinking and accordingly their innovative art culture since a young age. For this reason, Hanover has always had an affinity for creative expression through various forms of art and design. In 2018, she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Arts with a focus in Multimedia Design and a minor in Art History from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Hanover furthered her education and completed her Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2020.
