Katie Robinson is a full time artist with an enthusiastic passion for all her projects. She sells and exhibits works in several galleries nationwide, and her commissioned pieces appear throughout the world including India, England, Australia and the United States.
Her exhibition/publication credits include several on and offline art organisations and websites. A commissioned piece was featured in the arts and literary journal Rem in 2010.
Katie brings her trademark street-grit style into the realms of contemporary high-art.Yet her work is acutely accessible, at times subtle and sensitive, which sees collectors from all walks of life adding her work to their walls. She is well-known for her alternative perspective on customised portraits, giving each piece an individual flare while satisfying needs of the client.
Katie's influences are truly global and encompassing, from the fantastic to the mundane, from the brilliant to the dull. At times, her artistic muse can be triggered by the slightest thing: a simple line in a book or song can inspire her.
The countryside of her hometown, Rodney, has featured on many of her canvases. Katie finds beauty in the most unlikely places: from a sickly tree, to a cow visiting the fence line by her house. Always, her art is dynamic and vibrant with a keen detail to a human story in the urban landscape. Her best insights come from the photographs that people send to her for commissions. A painting can be visualised in an instant when the inspiration hits; there is nothing that she loves more than when she see the seed of her initial idea come to life on the canvas.
Katie is the founder and manager of a popular artist promotional project at www.pinknoise.co.nz and her personal website www.katierobinson.co.nz is a permanent display of her gusty - sometimes irreverent - artwork.
