Meet Kate Grutsky

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kate Grutsky.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I moved to Arizona 5 years ago and let me tell you. It was quite a change for me! I’m originally from Russia. My hometown is located in the middle of the country. So going from a cold and snowy to a hot and dry climate, you can imagine the transition.

I was practicing law back home for eight years before I met my future husband. I took a chance and moved a thousand miles away from my home. I left everything behind to pursue a new beginning. I was not entirely sure as to what the future held for me. However, I needed to work, so I started looking for a job. I decided to go into banking. I work with great people, and I’m helping my customers with their finances, but my real passion is photography. I started taking pictures of my son when he was born, and I loved it! When I got my first camera I was so excited. I started taking photos of just about everything. I was eager to learn. Now I’m a mom, working a full-time job, and started my own photography business. I’m looking forward to this new adventure!

Please tell us about your art.
Photography is an art, the ability to freeze and capture a moment, create something special for yourself and other people. This will all become a memory in the future. I love being a part of it, love taking photos of all the beauty we have here in Arizona and also photos of people. I enjoy sharing it with everybody!

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
Photography is a really competitive field. There are a lot of people all over the world trying to make a living and support their families. I’d love to be a part of that world, but it’s always hard to start, hard to put your name out there. I believe it will happen with hard work and a little bit of luck!
