WHO & WHY?

Over the last year or two it might seem like I've gone off the rails. Have you wondered: "WHO is 'The Seeker'? and WHY is Katie painting this character instead of her Mother & Child art?"   If you are willing to read, then by golly I’m willing to share… (also: I’m still painting Mother & Child!)     In 2018 my heart felt broken when my best friend walked away. I was officially ghosted after sharing my inner pain with someone I trusted. With no way to share and find mutual understanding, confusion, hurt and silence followed. I expected a...

A wordless journey of heartbreak & hope

View the page devoted to A Silent Story   Silent Story is a wordless journey of heartbreak & hope. From joy through pain, and back to joy again.     I’ve just finished the final painting for the book. It’s not the last page in the book, though, I jumped around. On Instagram (stories) and in my Private Facebook Community, I’ve received lots of lovely feedback on this new dreamy sleeping painting, so, here I've paired her with the early sleeping page from the book.       This is an example of the transformation this book provides for the character,...
