Katie White

Growing up in an Alabama small town, I've always had a pencil in my hand, drawing what was in front of me ever since I was little. Using the simple materials began my love for black and white art pieces, allowing for the focus to be on the basic elements in an art piece - the shapes, tones and textures, but I'm beginning to branch out into color pieces. This also began my artistic focus on architectural aspects and ultimately what I would study in school. That is now changing to more abstract pieces. 

Art for me is therapeutic, getting me focused on creating something new that I hope will inspire others to slow down and appreciate the simplicity of what's in front of them. 

The majority of my work stems from memories, either mine or something someone else wants to remember in a medium other than photography. The rest of my work is the result of personal explorations in style or medium.  

I am always on the lookout for contrasting elements in our world. I am in love with both forms of architecture, built and natural.
