Kathryn Graff

Until experiencing a traumatic brain injury in 2015, Graff had very little experience in the realm of art. Graff had been working as a health insurance agent and maintained her license by working as a Senior Supervisor and Trainer at a call center. She says that her “inner artist” surfaced during her recovery, and is amazed that her brain was able to find a new passion after her injury. Making art allows Graff to find inner peace among the chaos of the world. She believes her art is an insight into the lives of people who suffer from an illness that is invisible to the outside world, specifically traumatic brain injuries. Though this year’s Art Ability exhibition will be her first show, she hopes it will be one of many.
