You know that Bruce Sringsteen song that goes-" some people just give up living, start dying little by little, piece by piece, others they get off work at night and go out racing in the streets"(racing in the streets on darkness on the edge of town)-well this is the chicks version.
  Katie Pell has divided the world not into bohemian and traditional; conservative and liberal, but people who do something and people who watch and spend. Pin Money' is a humorous poignant portrayal of disposable income and American pastimes.
   Katie Pell was born and raised in Wilmington, De. She received a BFA painting from Rhode Island School Of Design a long time ago. She has worked as a tomato picker, nanny, workshop instructor, art instructor in after school programs and Juvenile detention, art fabricator and assistant for two artists. Since moving to San Antonio in 1995 Katie has been busy making art in her studio downtown, Among her favorite accomplishments are receiving artist residencies in Aspen CO and Pilchuck Glass School, Showing artwork about the country, and most recently, being included in the Altoids Collection which will travel around in 2004-5.
