About the artist, Kathryn Lisko:
During her days at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Kathryn ran wildlife research projects, interned in wildlife rehabilitation in Oklahoma, and learned about animal behavior in an apprenticeship with Renea Dahms, a local dog trainer. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Wildlife Ecology, she began her career as a Zoological Aide at the Point Defiance Zoo in Washington State.
Kathryn currently spends her time working with a variety of animals. Her favorites include meerkats, Damarland mole rats, and ring-tailed lemurs. Other than photography, her spare time is spent on drawing, reading, and baking.
Her photos were first published through Solent News and featured on the Daily Mail UK website.
Join us at our art reception at Met Vet on Monday, May 20th from 5-7pm. Kathryn's photography will be available for purchase, our staff will be present for tours and to answer questions and light refreshments will be served. Please invite friends & family!
