Katie will be opening her studio & gallery to the public for a spring exhibition on the 6th , 7th. and 8th. of April 2012.
Katie will be showing large oil paintings, watercolours, mosaics and a selection of printed and hand painted cards.
“My watercolours are mostly painted on site, I never tire of the Cypriot land and seascape, I especially love trees and the sea; just sitting and observing the constant change of colour and the movement in the sea. I rarely plan my oil paintings, preferring to follow a line of colour. They develop by themselves. My dreams and memories appear through the colours and shapes with the outcome unknown.“ To see & read more visit… www.katiecolours.com

New work by the artist will include surreal drawings focusing on loss and fear, childhood memories of the longings and desires that still live with us all. This externalising of the deep anxieties that we have can be a bridge where we can begin to face what we cannot bear to look at. Incorporating psychology, fine art and spirituality, his work is unique and allows us to look where we don’t want to look.
Only the brave.
