Katie Whelan

Katie describes her work by saying “It’s all about love!”. Her paintings are imaginary landscapes with the theme of love in abundance, conveyed to the viewer with warm colours, floral and heart motifs. Often her paintings begin with images telling stories of her experiences and things she likes. As the layers of paint build up the images of almost everything but the hearts disappear. Katie has sold a substantial amount of work and has provided much joy for customers for whom she has made commissioned work
