Artist Business/Gallery Announcements:

Born and raised in Southern California,  award winning artist Katherine Meade, has had since childhood a love for art: drawing, painting and creating.   Katherine is a deeply admires  nature and the physical world around us. This love of nature and a need to learn more about it lead her to earn a degree in Botany from the University of California. Being very artistic, Katherine used her skills as a means to help pay for her education. Upon completion of her degree,  she was able to use her passion for science and nature  while working  as an Analytical Chemist with the U.S. Forest Service.  In that position, she  studied forest health alongside dedicated scientists from around the globe, while continuing to hone her artistic talents.

After moving from Southern California to the Midwest in the early 1990’s, she began to work full time as an artist rather than a chemist. Her first show earned enough to launch her art career and when her first entry in the Indiana State Fair won Wildlife Best of Show,  she knew she was on the right path. She discovered that  her scientific training in observation, objectivity, problem solving, the study of light and morphology serves her well in her studies as a painter. She hopes to instill the same appreciation for nature, light and observation in the  viewers of her art.  Katherine has been juried into many national and international shows. Her  recent awards and recognitions include: National Oil and Acrylic Painters Best of America show’s Best Landscape Juried into Oil Painters of America 2015, 2017, 2018 Mayor’s Choice Award, Carmel International  Fine Arts Fair 2015 and 2017 Third Place Best of Show, Louisville St. James Court Fine Art Fair October 2016 3rd place Carmel International Arts Festival 2016
