The 'Blue Planets' series is inspired by Katie's passion for the ocean. Each painting is completely unique and uses multiple layers of inks, enamels and acrylics to reflect the depth and colours of the Hebridean seas around her home on Skye. A final resin glaze enhances the water-effect.
Talking about her inspiration Katie says, "I want the viewer of my paintings to feel like they're looking over the side of a boat and seeing all the blues dancing below. Conversely, I think that they also mirror the night sky above, the gold could be stars or galaxies against turquoise nebulas. I want to recreate that depth, whether you're looking down to the water or up to the sky."
