KATIE DEGROOT

Katie DeGroot’s watercolors are odes to woodlands and flora.  Gnarled branches, twisting twigs, and shaggy moss are among her favorite subjects.  Discoveries on walks along property in upstate New York and from hikes through unkept forests allow Katie to observe the beauty in an ordinarily unnoticed fallen limbs or to study fungi growing within a decomposing trunk.  These are the treasures DeGroot uncovers and paints.  Sometimes she hauls something special or particularly captivating home, bringing it into her studio to paint from life. Whether from memory or on-hand, she captures the beauty, decay, and all the peculiarities of nature in her work.
