Kathleen Caricof has a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and for over 20 years she has instructed and carved with sculptors from around the world at Marble/Marble-Institute of Colorado. She also teaches year round at the Art Students League in Denver and has been a member of the National Sculptors’ Guild since 1996. Caricof has received many awards – from a “Purchase Award” and “Best of Show” at the 2007 Sculpture at the River Market Invitational in Little Rock, Arkansas to the decidedly singular "People's Choice" at the International Snow Carving Championships in Breckenridge, CO. Among her most significant NSG Public placements is “Stars and Stripes,” a 30 ft x 40 ft intertwining stainless steel sculpture at the Veterans’ Memorial for the War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, AR. Other major placements can be seen throughout California, Colorado, and Arkansas.
