About the Artist

Hi! I'm Katie!

I am a self-taught artist, recently embracing my true creative nature. I am a wife and mother of four kids, and two doodles.  I live and work in Utah. My personality shines true in my art, with joyful energy and bright, soft color.  I've exhibited in shows and juried competitions from Washington to North Carolina and in between. My art is found in private collections across the country and in Canada.

I’ve always been touched by beauty. The sunset over the desert, or an orchard in full bloom can stop my breath.  I try to infuse that joy of color into each painting.  As an abstract expressionist artist, I paint intuitively.  I try to bring balance and flow into each piece. I like to think my cheerful optimism shows through.  When I can’t help but smile when I look at each painting, I know I’m done. Painting, for me, is an exploration of the spirit. I paint because I find parts of my soul that I never knew I had.
