Katt Janson Merilo currently lives in the Seattle area. Her interest in photography began in middle school after developing the first roll from her first personal camera, an Olympus Stylus. Her appreciation for correct post processing began on that roll, too, as a cyan tinting left uncorrected by the lab discouraged her from shooting with that camera again until she learned it wasn't her, or the camera's, doing. She has studied photography in Virginia and the Czech Republic, and hung shows in Chicago and Portland. See more or her work at her website.
