Having studied photography in suburban Chicago, Kaminski was brought to the Hudson Valley by CPW in 2011 when she participated in the Arts Administration Internship. Since her internship she has built a business as a photographic assistant and artist studio manager. Her network of clients range from commercial & fine art photographers to legendary feminist artists — work that had her consulting with international galleries and museums. She has worked as a digital and alternative-process printer, retoucher, studio manager, archivist, and process teacher. Her fine art work has been shown in group exhibitions nationally.

Inspired by the diverse yet heavily impacted ecology of the Hudson Valley, she has been recently pursuing a better understanding of plant physiology, ecology, and contemporary environmental issues at SUNY New Paltz. In the process, she found herself captivated by the visceral physicality of clay. Creating art from mud seems to be the bridge between her approach to art and science, and it rapidly has become an inseparable part of her life.
