Kati Casida works with handmade papers and with various metals. Her paper works are in the collections of International Paper Co., New York; Hastings College of the Law, San Francisco; and many private collections. Her sculptures in public places can be found in the cities of Berkeley, California, Santa Clara, California, and Dallas, Texas, as well as her native Viroqua, Wisconsin.
She works in aluminum and steel and sometimes combines these with wood and stones. Her themes are nature, the landscape, and nomadic life: tents and sleds reflecting her Norwegian American background and studies of the SAMI (Lapp people) of the Nordic countries.
Casida is a charter member of The National Museum of Women in the Arts; and a member of Women's Caucus for Art, U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, American Indian Council, Missing Persons of Cyprus, National Academy of Science Human Rights, Refuge Center for Women & Children of Bosnia, and Hungarian Council.
