About The Artist

Katie is a world traveler and artist both professionally and self-taught in acrylic, charcoal, and other media.

Explaining her method, "I ask my work to speak for itself. My one goal is to create work so vibrant and alive it seeks to explode off canvas. I take my cue from the subject and express it with the brush or other artistic tool. In the end the piece communicates as clearly as speech. If this is the experience of the observer, I have accomplished my goal,”  she explains. The artist's unique and bold approach to the brush and pencil is indicative of Katie's desire to portray not only the subject involved, but the vision behind.

Born to a British father and an American mother, the artist started her artistic career early. While living in Northern Virginia, she originally used pencil as a way to describe life around her, preferring to sketch the family horses as they lived on the farm. Later she would turn to painting as another outlet. After the sale of the farm in the mid-90's, many moves and travels to the Netherlands, Ireland and England, Katie and her husband, Marco, finally settled in Kentucky, where she is currently pursuing her love of art and creativity.

Katie is an established member of the Boone County Visual Arts Association, and Arts Kentucky, in addition to being sponsored by Transition Art Studio. While typically found in her studio, brush in hand, the artist ventures out during a number of local shows.

The observer will appreciate the original and bold approach in Katie's technique, which encapsulates a style unique to her work.
