About the Artist
Kat Nottingham is best known for her waterscape and dramatic skyscape paintings in oil on canvas. Kat’s artwork reflects her reverence for the vastness, power, and beauty of nature. “In each of my paintings, I try to celebrate moments of precious beauty - a tree reflecting on water, the crest of a wave just before crashing on the beach, sunlight dancing across a golden field of grain…”
Water is a common theme throughout her work. “There’s something calm and soothing about water, but it can also be powerful and full of energy. It’s dynamic and ever-changing. Water is always reflecting the sky, that relationship adds another vast dimension of movement, color, and light.”
Kat's contemporary landscape paintings draw inspiration from her experiences as an active Minnesota outdoor enthusiast: sailing on Lake Pepin, biking state pathways through golden marshlands and fields, and hiking along the North Shore of Lake Superior. She also paints seascapes inspired by morning walks on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she goes to escape Minnesota winters.
