Kate Hanrahan is a New Orleans-based artist who is able to use a variety of media to produce spectacular pieces of artwork. She paints, draws, makes paper cut-outs, and builds installations that interact with their surroundings and seemingly come to life.

One of Kate Hanrahan's highly intriguing pieces of work titled The Time Traveler makes great use of an old and crumbling doorknob piece. The scraggly haired figure appears to be holding the derelict item up to its face, peering through a hole where the handle used to be. It's a piece that exemplifies Kate Hanrahan's ability to take offbeat objects and integrate them into wonderful creations. In a world full of decaying debris, creative minds like Kate Hanrahan have plenty of materials with which to work.
