A native of Greensboro, North Carolina, Katie began her artistic career while a student at The University of the South.
As an abstract expressionist, Katie loves to explore the push/pull of boldness and quiet femininity. The female figure has long been her primary study, but is now less a subject than an introduction to the harmonious tension of her abstracts. The creative process begins with an energetic, uninhibited rendering of either the figure or simply the movement Katie feels from inspiring music. What follows is a very deliberate layering of gestural brushwork to harness that initial freedom into something balanced.
She lives with her two children in Charleston, South Carolina.
