    ++Solace awarded prize for best multimedia piece. Read the review here.


On October 28th, 2006 my Grandfather passed away at the age of 92. He was a Lt. Colonel in WWII, giving over 37 years of his life to the United States Army. He was a fighter and a soldier until the very end, "longing for the solace of the battlefield." The following is a 3 minute multimedia piece documenting the days immediately following his death. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any thoughts.*




+Winner of Photo + Music Multimedia Contest - August 2007

... [Kate's] multi media presentation used the best of what photography and music can do; touch you in an honest, emotional way. By sharing some of the most personal moments of a dramatic event in [her] life ... lets the viewer in to a life tale that all have, or will, relate to. The mark of much lasting art is the chord that rings true in more people than the next piece. By revealing something, [she] have given of herself. Well done.
