Katinka is a professional librarian and has worked over twenty years in libraries in Clackamas County. She served six years on the Estacada Area Arts Commission, leading the city through the adoption of a percent-for-arts ordinance and three public art projects. She currently serves on the boards of five local arts organizations: Clackamas County Arts Alliance Advisory Council, Clackamas County Cultural Coalition, Artback Artists Cooperative, Performing Arts Group of Estacada and Estacada Area Literary Foundation. When Katinka’s children were young, she managed the artist-in-residence and PTA Reflections programs for the Estacada Grade School and the Estacada Junior High. She also volunteered at an after school arts program for youth using discipline-based-arts-education methodology. Her son is a professional jazz musician in LA, and her daughter is a multimedia artist/musician in Portland. She lives in Estacada and is always impressed with the quality and diversity of their vibrant artistic community and the dedication of their arts supporters. As they say in the Artback, Let’s Paint the Town!
