KATHRYN MIRIAM

Kathryn was born and raised in Garfield, New Jersey, a town known for paper mills and Polish pierogi. In 1992, her family won the New Jersey lottery, an event that changed their lives for better and worse. This unique experience is the basis of her Television Pilot The Lottery Curse, as well as a Memoir under the same title. 

Kathryn attended Rutgers College, where she received a BA in Art History and English while working at galleries in SoHo including famed Pace Gallery. She moved to NYC to continue at top galleries and museums, writing numerous press releases and art-related content. As Director of global galleries with locations in the US, Asia, and Europe, Kathryn met challenging sales goals, closing millions annually in private and public acquisitions with top collectors and companies including real estate giants Mitsui Fudosan and Macerich. 

Kathryn graduated from Parsons in Fashion Studies and worked in Costume for commercials, live productions, and feature films Plague Town (2008) and Lifelines (2008), before earning an MA in Art History at Queens College. Her passion for art and language led her to live in Rome, Paris and Scotland, where she was invited by William Grant & Sons to write an essay for their Artist in Residence catalogue.  Her articles on Contemporary Art have been published in Irreversible magazine, Paris-based L’Orpheus (online), and her research on fashion depicted in Rembrandt's paintings was selected by the Costume Society of America for their 2011 Symposium: Dress Scholarship in the Twenty-First Century. In 2012 she presented a lecture based on her writing on allegories in Caravaggio's work at the Islip Art Museum. 

Over the last three years, Kathryn has focused exclusively on The Lottery Curse, working closely with award-winning writers for HBO, ABC, and more.
Kathryn lives and works in the New York City area.
