Katie is a Sussex based artist interested in documenting and recording the places she lives and works in through drawings, paintings, performance, photography and poetry. She has exhibited her paintings and drawings across Sussex, Surrey and London and recently had a solo exhibiton, A Sense of Place, in Mon, Denmark. Katie has also been nominated for a number of awards, including Lynne Painter Stainers, Jerwood Drawing Prize, RA Summer show and Discerning Eye.
In 2014 she was awarded a Arts Council England grant to fund her year long residence at JMW Turner's House in Twickenham, which was followed by a solo exhibition 'A Guest in Turner's house' at Orleans House in 2015, which toured to Winchester in 2017.
She has subsequently been invited to create work in other venues of historic importance, including West Horsley Place, Strawberry Hill House, Pope's Grotto and Normansfield Theatre, showing work from the latter 3 venues in another solo show, 'Eternal Sunshine' in Twickenham Nov 2017.
West Horsley Place
"West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed mediaeval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The house is currently on Historic England's At Risk Register and along with the outbuildings is in a very bad state of repair. The Mary Roxburghe Trust's mission is to restore the house, gardens, 380 acre estate and 8 Grade II listed outbuildings, as well as creating here a vibrant centre for the performing and visual arts and the teaching of crafts".

West Horsley PlaceKatie's residency and subsequent shows have led to a continued exploration of the narrative components surrounding objects, memories, interior and exterior spaces, brought to life with her spectacular use of colour and detail. So its with great excitement and anticipation that Seawhite Studio announce Katie's 2019 June course, Drawing and Painting Interiors - Danny House. You can book on this course directly by clicking on the link in the following course feature.
"Danny House was the location of my first official Roaming Residency back in 2012, when I was commissioned to do 3 paintings by the owner Richard Burrows. I am very please to be able to go back there with other artists looking for fresh inspiration from a beautiful, lived in, historic interior, set in the foothills of the Downs with spectacular views".

Drawing and Painting Interiors - Danny House
Painting by Candlelight
February 2nd & 3rd 2019 (Saturday & Sunday) 2-9 pm each day..
This is a magical experience painting in the soft, winter, afternoon light as it fades into dusk and then darkness. The setting is Rackham Village hall with its large windows looking out to the Downs. A sumptuous still life will be set up in the space for you to work from: lit by candles that will glow with light and enliven the shadows as the daylight fades. You will start work in the afternoon working from observation making drawings and paintings on paper and canvas. As you get to know the subject the light starts changing whilst you carry on painting. As you work in the near dark unexpected colours and marks overlap to create new work that is charged with the atmosphere changes in your work to unfold. "When you can't see what you are doing, you have to simply trust in the process!" Your finished paintings will be done freshly, fast and spontaneously to capture the magic of the moment.
(Each evening there will be a simple supper provided for you, to finish off the day with good food and good company cooked by Emily)
