Katinka Clementsmith

Katinka Clementsmith, works in two very distinct styles, but both are very recognizably and stylistically hers.  

The offbeat colorful portraits of her “Imaginary Friends” series emphasis the uniqueness of personalities. This body of work has been inspired by the bohemian artists of Paris that she has always much admired but fell very much in love with while visiting the museums after an art retreat to France several years ago.   

The evocative but simplistic “Silhouette Series,” tell stories minimal detail.  These are done with many layers of color washes, sometimes mixed media, and nearly always painted in nearly a trance like state, often in pain, with no idea where the painting will take her until it is finished and complete.

Both series are expressive and use color as a means to communicate mood.  Katinka works in oil, acrylic and watercolor, and often included mixed media.  

Katinka was born in 1968, in Southern California, where she still lives, and creates art. She shows at many solo and group shows, galleries, and festivals, throughout the United States.  She teaches at BigFoot Art Classes in Temecula, California.
