Originally from Yorkshire, Katie is a self-taught artist now living in Bramhall with her young family. Her striking paintings capture beautiful scenery and urban settings both locally, in Cheshire and Manchester, and further afield. Travels to places such as Peru, Vietnam and Japan have inspired her work.
From a young age and throughout her language teaching career, Katie has had a passion for art. She has a rare talent for portraits as well as landscapes in a range of media. After finishing teaching and starting a family, she recently set up her own art business, fulfilling a life-long dream.
In 2018, she was invited to exhibit a solo show at Didsbury Open Gardens. She has exhibited paintings at Stockport Art Gallery as a member of Stockport Art Guild and is looking forward to a solo exhibition at Didsbury Parsonage in December 2019.
Katie’s past work has inclined towards realistic representation, but she currently enjoys a more abstract and vibrant approach, often using the medium of acrylic with pen. This has resulted in a very distinctive style. She is fascinated by the play of colour, light and shade within her compositions, and loves the balancing act that this creates.
