Katy Helen Kalt - Biography
Glassd mirror mosaic surfboard art is created by local Southern California artist Katy Helen Kalt. Each piece of mirror is individually cut and placed by hand by the artist at her studio in San Clemente. The surfboards that serve as her canvases have ridden their last waves and are now reincarnated for a new life riding walls and reflecting love for the ocean.
Originally a Minnesota native, Katy moved to San Diego in 2007 and fell in love with its beaches and surf culture. Though she has been an artist her entire life, it was not until early 2009 that she traded in a less than fulfilling career as a software executive to focus on her true passion and create art full time. She has been making her living with a smile ever since.
