Katie O is an artist who lives and works in Coventry, England. In school she discovered her love of drawing and quickly gained a reputation amongst her peers as a talented artist. She continued her love of art on through to university, where she honed her skills and developed a style that reflects her unique imagination, while gaining an honours degree in Fine Art.
Katie O’s artwork covers many subject matters, but is tied together by a desire to challenge the perceptions that people hold about their everyday lives. This could be exploring animal transformations that nature forgot to evolve, or adding a new twist to the imagery of our favourite fairytales. In Katie O’s art, everyday objects can become terrifying, or the viewer can feel sympathy for even the most ferocious of monsters.
The altered realities presented in Katie O’s artwork provide intrigue and curiosity for the viewer, challenging that which they used to fear, while also questioning that which they believed was safe. They are seeing the world through new eyes. Through Katie’s eyes.
