As a student K.E. Watt was doubly matriculated at Rhode Island School of Design in painting and at Brown University in voice performance. About half-way through, an unexpected epiphany led to a western migration and the inside-out pursuit of art and music at Brigham Young University. Ultimately emerging with a BFA and high honors in painting and a minor in Applied Voice, Watt returned to the east for postgraduate studies in opera at Boston University, followed by a stretch in the opera trenches.
There were continuing vocal studies in New York and Europe, and contracts with regional opera companies in the United States, singing lots of roles that start with "S": Sesto, Siebel, Senta, Sieglinde, Salomea few other heroines (and heroes) by Straussboth of them.... You get the picture.
That left the rest of the alphabet to explore. K.E.
Watt taught elementary and junior high school in the Navajo Nation, painted
for galleries in Massachusetts and Utah, illustrated for companies from
Good Things Collective of New England, to Southwest Bell and Scholastic
Nowadays, numerous surgeries, lots of illustrations,

represented in Stagebill, Playbill, and the publications
of Lincoln Center.
