Katy Moran

Viewed from a distance Katy Morans paintings have a very Victorian quality to them. You almost expect, on closer inspection, to see romantic settings in tranquil surroundings but instead you see her strong use of brush strokes and thick acrylic. Often paintings will take her between 15 and 30 minutes to complete but this can be a lengthy process as she does 6 or 7 in a series until she is satisfied with the results. I love her work as it has a blurred grey area between the Victorian and her very expressive style. Bringing 2 worlds into one and letting the viewer create their own perceptions about the painted scene.



This one above is by far my favourite.
