Katie Whyte is a visual artist and creative producer,
based in South-East Queensland, Australia.
Katie is known for her use of colour and abstract forms in large-scale murals, studio painting and brand collaborations. Her art uses visual attention, memory and meaning to connect with a sense of place, identity and past experience.
Emerging as an exhibited visual artist in the early 2000's Katie attended The University of Southern Queensland to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours). She is also a former optical vision therapist, completing theoretical study and clinical training in the improvement of visual perspective.
After studying both vision and art, she views painting as a means of making sense of the world. In her work, she explores how art acts in a similar way to vision, by influencing our understanding of space and identity so that meaning can be drawn from our experiences.
Katie also produces and facilitates workshops with Flying Arts Alliance and Makers’ Shopfront for artists establishing their creative business without losing their arts practice values.
