Katie is a mixed media contemporary painter, interested in time, land, and mental mapping. For source imagery, she uses topographical maps, boundary lines of indigenous communities, modern day city grids, and migration patterns of birds. Katie's work develops cycles, patterns, shifting elements, and movement. Her work is bright, abstract, and fertile. For materials, she works on wood panels, layering paper and paint on top on one another. This layering creates a tactile surface that shows the process as well as the moment of completion. Her use of topographic and mapping elements grapples with the way humans have moved and shifted through time, but also shows a connectedness and hope for renewal.
