Kathryn Taylor Gray's Profile

About

I am a small town Southern girl originally from the tiny community of Start, Louisiana (whose one and only claim to fame is being the hometown of Tim McGraw!). For two decades I pursued photography as a hobby, then in 2005 Hurricane Katrina blasted ashore and changed everything where I lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, including me. In those surreal days after the storm, I found some old rusty keys in a pile of hurricane debris and a "Eureka" moment ensued: "These will make cool earrings!"

My husband and I and our sassy cat named Dollar (found as a kitten in a Dollar General store) have recently moved to Richmond, Virginia, to begin a whole new chapter in our lives.

Life is so very good and I thank the Good Lord for every single day!
