I’m Katy, a self-taught Ink Artist from South Australia.

I fell in love with inks from the first time I used them. I love the vibrancy of the colours and how unpredictable they are. Each piece is truly unique!

As a sufferer of anxiety, I find the process of painting with inks very relaxing and it allows me to completely switch off from the outside world and immerse myself in my painting.

Nature, people and different cultures constantly inspire me. Always a creative spirit and romantic at heart, I continue to experiment and develop my style and let nature lead my ever-evolving interests.

After working as a Graphic Designer for over 10 years, I was unexpectedly made redundant while on maternity leave with my youngest son. I decided to embrace this time with my young family and it really helped me to re-evaluate what I wanted in a creative job. I wanted to explore my creativity in new ways that didn’t always involve using a computer!

The most satisfying part of my job is seeing the look on someone’s face when they see the piece of artwork you’ve created for them for the first time. When customers send in photos of their artwork hanging in their homes, being able to move people emotionally through something I’ve painted is an incredible feeling.
