​Hello!  My name is Kathreen Kaye Rodrigo Absuelo.  I was born September 8, 1991 in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines.  My early years was spent living in Ayala Alabang and Santa Rosa Laguna which are cities in northern Philippines, Manila.  

Seattle is the place my interest in doodling as a child turned into my eternal devotion for painting and creating what appeals to my mind.  My first art exhibition took place at the 619 western building in Pioneer Square during First Thursday Artwalk in July 2011.  This was a creative space I admired for years ever since attending my first artwalk there. It was among my favorite places in Seattle to see beautiful work by international and local Seattle artists.
 
Today, I surround myself with positive energy, friends, family, creative and inspiring individuals who all support my pursuit to be universally recognized as an artist.  My curiousity is sparked by design + architecture, sustainability, and technology.  I enjoy spending my time with my partner, studying, practicing health + fitness, learning new perspectives, cooking and eating delicious food from around the world, traveling, and most importantly playing with our cats.
