Image for Katie Allen

Katie's artwork is based on the natural world, their changing seasons and shades, which she transforms into a rich textile of patterns, forms and colours. Her paintings when viewed as a whole are of recognisable landscapes and natural forms - trees and plants, insects and birds - but on closer inspection become detailed abstract patterns composed of intricate designs and subtle colour harmonies which explore the play of scale from macro to micro and the movement between representational and abstract.


A trip to India in 2006 marked a major turning point in Katie's work. Influenced by the art and architecture of Rajasthan and Lucknow Katie started experimenting with painting in new ways in order to create the very beautiful works for which she is now known.


“As well as numerous western artists, I am greatly influenced by Indian art and architecture, calligraphy, Arabic art, Japanese paintings and fabric design. From vast palaces decorated with beautiful intricate patterns composed of gemstones and mirrors to delicate miniature paintings, from the gestural brush strokes of eastern calligraphy to 20th century textiles. I strive in my paintings to capture these qualities and to create something beautiful, evocative, delicate and carefully crafted.”


Born in Kington upon Thames in 1967 Katie currently lives and works in Swansea, Wales, UK.
