About


ARTIST STATEMENT

Katherine Brupbacher finds refuge in both painting and nature. Nature, intricate dreams and life experiences inspire her work. Having grown up primarily in Texas, the artist is influenced by the native landscape, flora and fauna. Her process involves observing and responding to the natural world around her. The feeling of specific moments with nature are expressed in her work through color and movement. 

As they view the works, the artist hopes the audience will come away with a sense of curiosity. From that curiosity the viewer will further explore their own connection with nature and the healing properties nature provides. The paths crossed between encounters with nature and a dreamlike memory of those experiences can create a fresh perspective for the viewer with their environment.
