Katharine Dickinson Paintings
In my art I work to describe the beauty and flow of the human form. The careful composition of the images represent balance not unlike one thatís needed for high performance athletes.I look for visual patterns of the body as a depiction of energy,and then use vigorous visual content to express it. Sport as a theme of art in the presented images has been created in away that relates to popular culture.

Artist's Statement:
I studied fine art at the internationally renowned Slade School of Fine Art in London. Trained in classical painting, my painting are in oil, acrylic and digital. My paintings are distinctive for their use of rich and vibrant colours. I seek to capture the emotional spirit of my subjects in the mood and expression of each painting. Currently I am exploring the use of modern tools in sports painting, using a combination of traditional and digital techniques that reflect the beauty and raw spirit of people. These techniques allow an extensive exploration of colour variations and combinations, as well as the versatility of reproducing the image on different media. The diversity of texture and brush strokes in new media techniques evoke a modern spirit that embodies contemporary art.
