ABOUT THE ARTIST

     Katie Martin is a wildlife and landscape painter with a love of surfing, hiking, snowboarding and the outdoors. Katie received her B.A. in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where the ocean played an integral role in the inspiration for her artwork. Relocating to the mountains of Colorado and rural Vermont in the years following, provided exciting opportunities to discover new landscapes and wildlife that are obvious reflections in her body of work.
     Katie currently resides and works in Portland, Oregon, where she is working to expand her nature and wildlife collections. She continues to explore the wilderness and natural beauty of her surroundings to gain inspiration, striving to consistently push the limits of color, light and contrast in her work.
