Katy originates from beautiful North East Yorkshire, God’s own country and where one of many esteemed artists such as David Hockney, Henry Moore , Barbara Hepworth and Katy come from. Now living in Lincolnshire, Katy grew up painting stone animals that were in her grandma’s garden…and feeding her love of Art with a self taught approach to drawing and painting , focusing mainly on ethereal portraits or detailed sketches …that is where it all began you might say.

Katy Studied Fine Art at Tyhe University in Lincoln and gained her Honours Degree in Fine Art and says that she really learned as she went along and found her calling by discovering and falling in love with Oil as her medium and that contemporary fine art was less important to her.

In 2013, when Katy’s career as an artist truly began, she threw her whole energy, creativity, money, heart and soul , leaving nothing behind into progressing her career, believing initially that it was not obtainable, how wrong she was…with her career now hugely successful and becoming one of the UK’s leading and foremost symbolist artists, gaining her inspiration from the french Surrealist/Symbolist painter Odilon Redon and with a growing international following, is set for the heady heights of the Art world at large.

Accumulating her following through an abundance of social media platforms ,being on the cover of The Journal Magazine, having an article in American Cliché and earning a living from her art, all within the first year was a major achievement. 

Katy’s Extreme Opulence, Vividness and no holds barred approach to colours in Oil , holds true in her approach to her spontaneous style in painting , her Kinetic overtones, elegance and richness of palette. The plethora of colour and drama all lend themselves to creating high drama and a feeling of etherealism, harmony and presence. Both a use of and not, representational imagery of animals, nature and portraiture are not shied away from, Katy uses the recognisable images on a background of cloud like, loose but painterly , using her fingers to smooth and smudge the oils giving blend and movement and always pleasing to the eye. The colour palette, shapes and composition are always a constant source of her decision making.

Katy’s work strikes a cord with colour purists, harmonists and dreamers alike and she likes to enjoy the process just as much as the finished painting . Her work appeals to many and varied buyers , collectors and lovers of her work. There is a distinct correlation between family in nature and the human world , thus her family groups of bears and deer always strike at the heartstrings. Seeing her work on the walls of Galleries sometimes makes her feel nervous and exposed as her work to her, lives with her and her family and forms part of her own personal journey…. They seem to take on a more formal feel when framed and hung, sort of grown up.
