Katie Adkins is a self taught artist and resides in New Kent County, Virginia. Her paintings have been described as Realism with magical nostalgia. Katie began painting onto canvas using acrylics and photographs that inspired her. Her love for seascapes began to take life onto canvas, triggering requests for prints and personal paintings. Katie's work is displayed in Noontidings Inc catalogues and hand paints signature sand dollar ornaments for Chesapeake Bay Christmas Company that are sold via web.
Katie's artwork may be viewed/purchased at local marketing events in the Richmond and Tidewater area, beach towns along the East Coast and also through her website. Although she enjoys taking on different challenges of other subjects, her true passion are seascapes. In her words, 'To me, a perfect painting should have water and the sky in it. Any subject painted in between those two elements are simply accessories.'
