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 a very uninhibited and energetic 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.
