Upon first glance at Katie’s Artwork,
one is filled with a captivating sense of self-refection & exploration. Her nudes, melancholy at times, allow
a glimpse into her subjects’ rare moments of quiet contemplation and solitude. Her bold unrestrained abstracts pull you in and awaken a sense of raw emotion that undulates across the spectrum from meditative calm to chaotic frenzy. The emotional evocation derived from a single piece mimics the moment by moment variation of one’s state of being. This is the magic of Katie’s work and perhaps why it speaks volumes to so many long before they become aware of her story...
"Painter Katie Ré Scheidt finds the beautiful side to every woman. When a woman asked artist Katie Ré Scheidt to paint her nude portrait for her 40th birthday, Scheidt was intrigued. The process begins with an-hour-long photo shoot, taking hundreds of photos from various poses."
