About

My current work stylizes intimate daily moments of life - grabs hold of the tactile and visible affection between mother and child.
The new paintings evoke light and texture - playing with how two or more confident figures can fold, bond and tuck together within
a whimsical atmosphere of energy and sparkle.

Each painting is crafted with umbers and white over a vivid under-painting. Pure and simple color allows for introspection as well as the finessing of figures and lines. Using a simple combination of dry brushing and layering techniques, color is infused, allowing warm shadows, thick highlights and energetic motion to be woven loosely together amongst the sounds of inspirational musicians such as Johnny Cash, KT Tunstall, Adam Hood, Ana Nalick and Carbon Leaf.

A mostly self-taught painter, I studied design and illustration at Central Washington University and had experimented with a variety of media when developing a mural on my son's wall quickly brought me back to painting. An unquenchable passion for process, progress and creation requires that I paint daily, consulting my sketchpad and ipod for inspiration and motivation.

Led by a passionate love affair for my children, color and music, I paint because I must and it is my desire that another may connect with the images as well.

Katie’s nearly unquenchable passion for process, progress, creation and discovery requires that she paint daily in her Vancouver, Washington studio. Her paintings sell regularly through her Online Studio Shop.

When not painting, you can find Katie enjoying time with her husband and two small children, walking, reading and learning about parenting, health, art and business.
