Katey and Kitty

I am a self-taught artist who uses abstract impressionism to depict nature’s grand explosion in all the colours of the rainbow. I paint instinctively and try to express nature in as much joy as I can.
Even though I love the world of art as a whole, drawing and painting in vivid color are my passion.
I always knew I was an artist but the chance to actually make a living as a painter came many years later. I had raised a family, and got a job as a silk painter for a wearable art designer.
It was an exciting time for me to be actually getting paid to have so much fun. I couldn’t wait to get back to work after the week-ends.
Every painting for me is a journey in which I get to learn something new and exciting. Hopefully, I am able share my joys to make the world a happier place.
I have continued to follow my passion for painting, doing Exhibitions and Craft Fairs and getting to know the people who enjoy and collect my paintings.
