ABOUT THE ARTIST

Katie Dunkle is currently traveling on a country-wide journey in a solar powered Tiny House. Taking her studio on the road and out into nature, she creates her growing and divergent art portfolio as a full-time artist. She is an avid traveler and explorer of all kinds. Katie is focused on a new body of work entitled "Wildflowers" and is continually expanding on “Girls” which visually probes the indulgence of desire through blind-contour line drawings of the female figure. “Wildflowers” is influenced by the sprawling size and diverse landforms America has to offer, yielding a treasure of spectacular superblooms. Beautifully rendered with crisp lines and vibrant colors, they possess a sentimental essence, which makes a lasting impression. One could imagine how traveling is a muse of endless inspiration for an artist who is a lover of the natural environment. Katie exhibits and curates across the US.
