Kate:Pervasive.It’severywhere.TheGestaltofitis remarkable. Every piece serves the whole. I forget that other towns have some billboards up that DON’T advertise new programming.That you can talk to a banker and they don’t finance films, or a lawyer who doesn’t rep talent. It all cycles back to the business here. You couldn’t get away from it if you tried. It’s completely surreal. FLiPm: What are your earliest memories of creating art? Kate: I am sitting on a train, rattling around next to a cool window, elbows propped on the fold- down table separating me and my mom. She sits opposite me. She is right-handed. I am left-handed. I am watching her hand move her pencil across a white page. I slowly start to do the same. I’m mirroring her movements. In tandem. I’m drawing now. It’s happening, people… I’m drawing. Look out, look out, look out! Ha. I might have been four? Five? I apparently drew a perfectly realistic fish at age two, but I don’t remember that. FLiPm: Who is your biggest art influence? Kate: Surely my mom, as yes, evidenced in the most direct fashion above, but mainly due to her incredible talent for painting, sculpture, and collage. Her father, Peter Kamenicek was a renowned Industrial painter in Prague. She grew up surrounded by art, and she has been exhibiting for years, making the most astounding abstract works and collages that leave me speechless more oft than not. You can see her work on her web site if you’re inclined to check it out… www.barbara-kelton.de/index_e.html. FLiPm: Now that you are becoming more proficient and known as an artist, do you see yourself continuing with acting? Kate: Hahaha aw bless… it always makes me laugh when people ask me this as if it were even REMOTELY up to me. The odds are sadly stacked against any woman in this industry who isn’t an ingénue anymore, so it’s charming that people think that I have any measure of control. Alas. Not so. Obviously I’d absolutely love to work until I’m dead, but in reality the chances of that only get slimmer with each passing year. (Also, please note that the actors are not, nor have they ever been, the ones in charge of hiring the actors. FLiPm: What roles have you had in the past, movies, TV, stage? Kate: One of my all time favorites continues to be Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. That was just so much fun to shoot, really wonderful people on that film. My first lead role in a series was in IFC’s Bullet in the Face, opposite Eddie Izzard and Eric Roberts. We had a blast shooting that up in Montreal. Then I was lucky enough to land a wonderful two season arc on a Stephen King show called Haven, which ran globally on the Syfy Network. I’d never had the chance to develop a character over such a long period of time before, so that was overwhelmingly fulfilling. FLiPm: What kind of music do you like? Kate:The good kind. But I’m also a huge, huge, huge, fan of silence. FLiPm: Does music play a role in your drawings/paintings? Do you like to listen to anything in particular while creating? Kate: Classical or silence when I’m combatting ‘overwhelm’, or most in need of focus, respectively.
