Artist Bio:

A self-taught contemporary artist attempting to achieve excellence in realism with acuity for color theory and composition. She initially learned to paint at the age of 13 at the Glassell Junior School of Art in Houston, Texas. As the proud wife of an Army veteran and mother to three children she has traveled the world and has found that it is the small things and special moments that she wishes to capture and share through her paintings. Initially, we might miss these special thoughts or moments she presents in her work; however, by incorporating the subject, the light and the paper she challenges the viewer to make what she sees relevant. Her use of various mediums has expanded to include a wide array of alcohol ink pieces. These abstract pieces capture a love of color and composition while challenging to viewer to derive his or her own meaning.

Katherine’s work has been featured in galleries such as the Phoenix Gallery in New York City and (currently) in a solo show at the Delaplaine Art Center in Frederick, MD. Her alcohol inks will soon be hanging in the 868 Estate Winery as a solo show from March to June, 2018. Today, her artwork is part of private art collections in a number of states and countries. She has exhibited work in national and regional shows, both juried and non-juried events.
