climbing is art


I think climbing is a most incredible physically creative way to get up close and personal with the environment and the beauty that surrounds us.

About


Scrambling Around the World

As a rock climber and jewelry maker I obviously love rocks. Their inherent beauty draws me to all kinds of wild places in the world. I think climbing is a most incredible physically creative way to get up close and personal with the environment and the beauty that surrounds us. This world is huge and life is ours to explore it. I think my passion for beauty, the environment, and playing out in the wild is transferable. Through this site, my art, and any other vehicle, I am committed to inspiring that passion in others. This can be my gift to the world, the only way I can hope to convince others to care deeply for the beauty of the natural world, and help save our planet.

cheers, kate
