Katinka - The Bio

Katinka Clementsmith works in two very distinct artistic styles. The offbeat, colorful portraits of her “Imaginary Friends,” series emphasis the uniqueness of individual personalities. The evocative, but simplistic “Silhouette Series,”  tell stories with minimal detail.  Both series are expressive and use color as a means to communicate mood.  Katinka works in oil, acrylic andwatercolor, often including mixed media.  

Katinka was born in 1968, in Southern California, where she still lives, and creates art. Her paintings have been in solo and group shows, galleries, and festivals, throughout the United States.  She teaches at BigFoot Art Classes in Temecula, CA and privately.
