Hello, my name is Kathryn Hood! I am 19 years old and am attending UNC Charlotte for Photography. I grew up in Raleigh, NC, I went to Broughton High School, and I love taking pictures! I love capturing moments that are precious and close to the heart. Although I agree with the "live in the moment" mantra, I think it is important to capture the important things in your life with a camera; our memory only has so much visual storage. I also use photography as my way of creating art; I have figured out that you can find art anywhere you look if you only look hard enough. Maybe even look through a viewfinder.

As an artist I have been fascinated for as long as I can remember with the contrast of light and darkness -- especially "light breaking through." Whether it is light streaming through late day clouds, through waving leaves, or in the myriad ways light breaks through between ourselves and the world around us. This painting, "The Breakthrough," emerged from meditations on such moments in group decision making and discernment. In my business I consult with governing boards, senior teams, and executives who are wrestling with forging new pathways for their organizations. This work also evokes breakthrough moments. My colleague, Charlotte Roberts, and I just published our book "The Mindful Board: Mastering the Art of Conscious Governance" in which letting light shine through in many ways and at many levels is key to decisions that make the world a better place.
