Katie Brookes was born near Manchester in 1987, grew up in Belgium and now lives and works in Brighton, UK. She studied at University of the Arts London, Camberwell, before being awarded a scholarship to the Royal Drawing School, completing the postgraduate drawing year in 2013.
Katie then studied at Turps Art school from 2015 to 2017. Katie has been exhibited throughout the UK and internationally, including solo exhibitions at Art Work Space London and the Chopping Block Gallery London and group shows at Christies London, Art Bermondsey project space and the Turps Gallery.
Alongside her practice as a painter Katie is an Atelierista (an Artist teacher) at a Reggio Emilia inspired Small School and Forest School in West Sussex.
Katie works rapidly on large unstretched canvas, beginning with drawing to create a base structure which then gets obscured and rediscovered with planes of colour. Katie creates landscapes that emerge and dissolve and that are suspended between the freedom of flowing paint and the structure of drawing.
