Quiet evening, the sun goes out outside the window, warm rays illuminate the room and highlight favorite objects. I am not writing an illusory copy, but the trace itself or the state, the inner glow from objects. My thoughts, feelings, emotions are transformed into a kind of creative energy that passes through me like a current and concentrates on my fingertips, then, pasty or light, I seem to sculpt images with paint. In painting, my experience with ceramics is unconsciously repeated. Everyone will see in my work their own "quiet evening", a picture of a state of peace and tranquility.

Katrin was born in 1979 in Novosibirsk, Russia. Her childhood and youth were spent among the virgin nature of the Siberian region.
She spends the summer months in Altai, imbued with the special energy of the majestic mountains and the Blue Katun river.
The contemplation of native nature gave rise to a desire to capture the elusive beauty of shapes and colors. This determined the creative path of the artist.
For more than 10 years, Katrin has been working with clay, simultaneously improving her painting skills. Some of her works have a complex texture, they seem to be molded, tactilely felt, the play of light and shadow is added to the color.
“In my painting, this experience is unconsciously repeated. My thoughts, feelings and emotions are transformed into a kind of creative energy that passes through me like a current and concentrates on my fingertips, only instead of clay I sculpt images with paint. I like to use the variety of possibilities of oil painting, it can be light and fluid like watercolor, or pasty and sculptural like clay.”
Despite the fact that all the works are painted from nature, the author passes them through the prism of inner vision and conveys energy, a trace, the very essence on the canvas.
Small formats are driven by the need to quickly express the mood and color impulse from what is seen.
Katrin is a great master who is fluent in the art of academic painting, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia. She has a diploma from the Novosibirsk State University of Architecture, Design and Arts and training at a private art school in St. Petersburg under her belt. The artist's paintings are regularly exhibited at Russian and international exhibitions; many works are in private collections.
