Painter and Illustrator
Katie Munro is a fine artist and illustrator, currently working and living in Portsmouth. She creates drawings and paintings in a variety of different media, such as oil and watercolour paints, inks and graphite. Her work is committed to capturing a moment in time and sensitively portrays the poignancy and detail of her subject. Much of her work studies movement, in a representation of sequences, to encapsulate the energy in that moment.
After graduating with a BA Hons in Drawing and Applied Art at University of the West of England, Katie spent over 5 years working as an industry painter and assistant to artists Damien Hirst and Mat Collishaw. During this time Katie continued to develop her draughtsmanship and painting techniques in a professional working studio and in her own personal projects.
Katie now works as an independent artist. She joined the Hotwalls Studio in October 2020, and shared spacious Studio 7 with fellow painter Louise Braithwaite. Katie’s specialities include her popular portraits of people and pets.
