Katya’s journey began when she encountered the Statue of Freedom in 1993, which led to 25 years of research as she sought to understand who the statue is. She was asked to write articles and given a Fellowship by the US Capitol Historical Society and the Architect of the Capitol to write a book. The results will be a children’s book, “Who’s That Lady on the Capitol dome?,” and a non-fiction book “Lady Freedom - Heart of the Nation.” With a 30-year career as a metalsmith, the voice of the bronze statue resonated deeply inside her. Katya’s devotion to sharing this story comes from the heart and soul of an artisan, a wordsmith and a passionate citizen.
