Katie Nathan is an artist passionate about painting wildlife, landscapes and sunsets. She particularly loves painting animals and has a passion for bringing her wildlife portraits to life through her use of colour and fine detail drawing technique. The flap of elephants’ ears, the stripes on a zebra nuzzling its foal, the rustle of a giraffe munching overhead leaves and the flapping of a heron’s wings as it lands are all inspiration for her nature paintings . These and many more are brought to life on canvas and paper through acrylic paints, gouache, pastels or watercolours, using vibrant colours and textures to bring her subjects to life. Sunsets, flora and fauna in addition to the sea and sky make a huge impact on Katie and her passion to reflect and portray what she has seen on canvas resonates within until the painting she is focussed on is brought to fruition.
Katie began her passion for painting and pastels as child and teenager, studying art at school. She returned to that passion after years of a career in teaching languages and bringing up a family and now exhibits in local exhibitions and shops and takes commissions of pets and animal portraits. There is always a list of yet unpainted subjects burning within her, waiting to find themselves on her next canvas or pastelmat paper and this excitement and their subsequent completion is one of the driving forces of her life.
