Katie enjoys creating paintings that people can connect to. She paints impressionist, highly textured landscapes and botanical pieces using brushes and palette knives to create works that are almost sculptural, inviting viewers to feel connected to the work. The paintings are energetic, honest pieces that viewers can enjoy hanging on their walls at home. To be hung in someone's home is a privilege, something she finds a lot of satisfaction in.
Katie's landscape works are pared back to show the outlines of forms with the sky and horizon levelling the design, to hold the eye. Thick swathes of paint define the features of the Australian landscapes, which are painted from memory and recollection. Her botanical works are gestural and dynamic; relying on colour, texture and form to describe the language of flowers.
