Katie Sollohub is a Sussex based artist who is interested in documenting and recording the places she lives and works in through drawings, paintings, performance, photography and poetry.
In 2014 she was awarded a Arts Council England grant to fund her year long residence at JMW Turner’s House in Twickenham, which is soon to be restored and opened to the public in 2017. ‘Being a part of this historic project has been a great privilege and an inspiration for me. It has allowed me to really develop my relationship to place and architecture, and has nurtured a fascination with the area I hope will be long lasting, as I have subsequently been invited to create work in other venues of historic importance, including Pope’s Grotto and Normansfield Theatre‘ (KS 2016)
Her work explores the narrative components surrounding objects, memories, interior and exterior spaces, brought to life with her spectacular use of colour and detail. You can see a selection of her most recent work “A Guest in Turner’s House” on the Turner’s House website gallery here
Katie is also an inspirational teacher, using her own experiences and processes to help motivate others. She aims to live life as a Creative Journey, and generously takes others along for the ride.
