Kathryn Belzer lives with her husband, Ed, and a host of other creatures, on a small, mixed, horse-powered farm in the Musquodoboit Valley of Nova Scotia. There is a house visible from one of her farmhouse windows. Other than that, the neighborhood is fairly quiet.
Her idea of a good time is being with friends of various species, kinfolk, all alone in the studio, or working on community projects at the Bicentennial Theatre.
In 1996, after Kathryn constructed a number of life-size figures and a couple of larger-than-life puppets in the livingroom, Ed began to yard out logs for a detached studio.
In the fall of 1998, Kathryn moved into the new studio space in what used to be a harness shed, and hasn’t stopped smiling since.
