Meet Kateri


Kateri Pomeroy joined the POVA Artist Collective in May 2014. She is originally from Denver, CO and was homeless in Nashville for 4 years. While in our program, Kateri secured section 8 housing in April 2015 with the help of Open Table Nashville. Kateri is a returning artist from our 2014 inaugural program. Her interest in creating art began while coloring with her mother, and when she started school and took art classes, that passion grew. Now in her more advanced years, the passion to create has more intensity with each created piece, as she views each creation as its own spiritual experience. Her favorite mediums are acrylic painting and sculpture with found objects.  She is known for her bold and colorful abstract art pieces. Kateri has live-painted at many local events around town including the Arts & Business Council's Summer Soiree fundraiser and West End United Methodist Church's Pilgrimage Journey.

"My desire for creating is to inspire creativity in others.”

Personal Goal: To create beautiful art for the public to ponder, enjoy, and share with others.
