This week’s Instagram spotlight on tiny Birmingham artwork

Kathryn Cooper.
Our Bham Now ‘InstaHam’ post this week is a little different. Just in time for holiday gift shopping, we are featuring a Birmingham artist whose work is burning up Instagram!

Born and raised right here in Birmingham, AL, Kathryn Cooper developed a love for painting and printmaking at Auburn University, where she received a BFA in 2011.  After graduation Kathryn returned to Birmingham and lived in a house full of artists.

 Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Home is where children find safety and security, where we find our identities, where citizenship starts. It usually starts with believing you’re part of a community, and that is essential to having a stable home. Matthew Desmond

Christmas… is not an external event at all, but a piece of one’s home that one carries in one’s heart. Freya Stark

Perfect gifts for the Birmingham “foodie” on your list!

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.

Abraham Lincoln

A great restaurant is one that just makes you feel like you’re not sure whether you went out or you came home and confuses you. If it can do both of those things at the same time, you’re hooked. Danny Meyer
