My name is Katie Buckett. I'm an oil painter who specializes in life-size hyperrealism. I'm 34years old and have been living in London for 7 years having moved from Brooklyn NYC where I received a BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute.
My work is extremely important to my life. I celebrate light and life with every new project ranging from a renaissance style portrait to a gorilla smoking a cigar. I want to create a dreamscape where the viewer can let their mind wander free.
My new series of portraits uses the same technical ability that I have used for years but is paired with daring expression and a new handling of my materials to bring out the essence of the emotion of my subjects.
