About the Artist: Ohso is a self-taught, mixed media artist, born & raised in New Orleans, LA. Her family relocated to Texas after hurricanes Katrina & Rita destroyed our home in 2005. She is an entrepreneur and co-owns Peace Keeper Martial Arts with her husband. Ohso also works from home Through Art of Ohso as a full-time Visual Artist, Online Educator, and Freelance Graphic Designer. She primarily paints imaginative, 3-D composition portraits of Women of Color with "Living Waters" as a prominent, recurring biblical metaphor. Many pieces feature women with "Flowing Tresses" sculptured onto the canvas because she views the hair as the "Crown and Glory" of a woman and in early African Cultures as well as some communities today, black hairstyles indicate social status, tribe, make political statements, used as a source of empowerment, and act as a conduit for spiritual interaction to God. Other recurring images in her work are West African Adinkra Symbols. Adinkra literally translates to "goodbye, or

Self portrait (Yes, it's intentionally upside down. It's metaphorical to the constant juggling.) Kathleen Day is an internationally published multidisciplinary contemporary artist, author, actor/model and founder of nonprofit international mail art project + virtual gallery, The Courrier. Coming to learn that she is on the autism spectrum in her adulthood after her son was diagnosed, Kathleen is an advocate for the disabled and differently abled community, with an equally strong voice for trauma survivors and human rights. She often utilizes her art and writing as a vehicle to touch on these subjects.

Her portfolio includes VOGUE Italia, Maxim Magazine online and many other established publications and businesses over her 16 year modeling career, while acting is relatively newer for her, having landed her first short film in 2018. She's been a published author since her teens in the 90's, followed by years of photojournalism for various local magazines and now operating her blog (formerly The Alchemist + The Butterfly). Kat is currently making ready to publish her children's book series, in the near future.

Day magazine collage and acrylic on 11”x11” card stock circa 2020 3. V Magazine cover artist K. Day acrylic painting on 10x13.5” card stock circa 2020


Her company The Imaginarium Wonder Emporium (founded in 2017) is a novelty vintage toy and magic shop through which she also sells her hand designed wearable art and rare clothing. Her company umbrella hosts the family nonprofit which was cofounded by her fiancĂŠ and manager Joe A. Gomez III of JAG Enterprises and their 10 year old autistic son Aiden Gamez who is an incredible internationally published artist himself. As is the case for many Americans, the COVID-19 pandemic shifted much of what Kat does professionally which in many ways gave room for her to flourish in her craft. She continues to take commissions for contemporary artistry, work on personal projects, run The Imaginarium, and work on her books in her limited spare time. With her February 2021 wedding approaching followed by her honeymoon in The Hamptons, New York, she's leaving the future open to limitless possibilities. And that's just the way she likes it.
