Katie Allen

Katie Allen’s paintings are inspired by the changing seasons and shades of the natural world. A rich textile of patterns, forms and colours, when viewed as a whole, each painting portrays recognisable and familiar landscapes.  Yet on closer inspection, Katie’s work reveals detailed abstract patterns comprising intricate designs and subtle plays of colour.  It is these explorations of scale, from large to small, and from the concrete to abstract, which make Katie's work renowned.  Having trained in Fine Art at The Bath Academy of Art, Katie is now based in Swansea. She also draws her inspiration from the architecture of India, calligraphy, Arabic and Japanese art, and with each painting, strives to “create something beautiful, evocative, delicate and carefully crafted.”
