Katy’s atmospheric paintings are made with layers of abstract, geometric shapes. Depth is built through textured brush work,
finished with subtle marks and glazes. Her work draws inspiration from the colours and lines of the dramatic Scottish
Katy loves to draw inspiration from nature painting dramatic landscapes with their moody weather conditions, drawing a lot of inspiration from the North Sea.
An abstract painter for the past twenty years Katy is exhibiting and selling her Artwork successfully through multiple online and social media platforms.
Each piece is created with multiple layers and textures, beginning with mark making and expressive strokes and moving on to more considered layers using shapes and colours as well as scratching and sanding back top layers to accomplish the atmosphere of the subject she is painting. Due to the depth and layers of her work you are able to explore the painting over time discovering new aspects to enjoy.
This collection is inspired by landscapes which are covered in the haar, a claustrophobic sea fog which creates a beautifully dramatic outlook.
