Katy Burdett - 2022
Katy exhibits and sells work at the Eagle Gallery in Bedford and in shows and exhibitions in Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire. She won a Great Art Prize in 2019 and recently had one of her paintings selected out of 21 artists and tutors as the poster for an exhibition of art with a garden botanical theme, at Yardley Hastings Arts Centre and open gardens event in Northamptonshire.
Katy has recently donated her work for clinics at Moorfield Eye Hospital and for new living accommodation for previously homeless people in Earls Barton, Northamptonshire.
Katy’s paintings are often mixed media where she combines collage, acrylic paint, ink and printed elements. Her aim is that the image created can appeal both on close inspection and also catch the eye from a distance. Design and composition are very important to Katy and she often uses a vibrant colour palette to interpret her ideas. Her mixed media pieces are specially sealed and can be framed without glass and the surface gently touched.
