Katie Is A Self-Taught Artist,
Living and Working in London
She started painting in 2008, and finds it both a meditative process and a means of self- expression and exploration.
Her paintings are flights of fantasy, moving seamlessly between factual illustration and non-figurative abstraction and exploring the co-existence and juxtaposition of different spiritual dimensions. The creative method she has developed helps her to conjure a unique, surreal world, evoking her emotional landscape.
Painting is an intuitive and organic process for her, and the images reveal themselves in stages, often unexpectedly. Working in oils and sometimes using the medium of collage, her style is distinctive and whimsical, informed by Medieval illuminations, Indian miniatures and the diverse influences of Chagall, Klimt and Bosch.
