ABOUT THE ARTIST
Katie Martin is an Oregon based Studio Artist, specializing in acrylic, wildlife and landscape paintings. Originally from North Carolina, Katie received a Studio Art degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where the ocean played an integral role in the inspiration for her artwork. Moving to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and rural Vermont in the years following opened her eyes to new landscapes and wildlife that are reflected in her more recent works.
Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, she continues to explore her surroundings as much as possible, and is currently expanding on her collections to reflect the inspirations found since relocating to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Katie finds that spending time in nature helps her create balance, while perpetuating the inspiration that is such an essential element to her studio work. When she’s not working in her studio, Katie enjoys surfing, snowboarding and hiking with her German shepherd “Moose”.
