During my life I have stepped across the paths of many people with the surname ‘Rivers;’
Dan Rivers – a fine chap with straight edge inclinations.
Lewis Rivers – the brother of a fine chap with Straight Edge inclinations.
Joan Rivers – the love of my life.
Yet none have been so artistically delectable as one Katie Yelda Zeretski Rivers, a performance artist, painter, carpenter and Michelin star chef, who insists that she wasn’t the one who stole the balsa wood from the Blue Peter garden in 1998.
At 24 she has the world at her fingertips, with the callouses on the underside of her hands testament to a relentless work ethic that has only temporarily been curbed due to her relatively new surroundings.
Now residing in Queenstown, New Zealand, Katie is granted easy access to some of the most aesthetically stunning landscapes in the world on a daily basis; only the emotionless could fail to find splendour in the cacophony of conspicuous mountains, lakes and clear skies that make the town one of the crown jewels of Oceania.
With the incredible spectrum of content within Ms Rivers’ portfolio, it’s obvious that she’s one to watch in the art world over the next few years, with a captivating personality backing up some serious and varied creative talent.
