Katia Honour

Artist bio

Katia Honours oil paintings are inspired by multi-cultural philosophies and ideals.

She witnessed the uplifting effects good art can have on people from all walks of life and has devoted her practice to conjuring beautiful, contemplative experiences.

Most of her work is created during sabbaticals within diverse spiritual communities world wide. The authenticity and sensitivity she gleans is apparent in the idealised, sensorial worlds she brings forth.

A sense of numinous is often created by subtle layering of various mediums, including acrylic, gilding, oils and tempera. There is an opalescent lustre to her originals heavily influenced by her classical European training and a Masters of Fine Art research into the contemporary applications of Old Masters methods.

I create art because...

beauty, awe and wonder are foods for the soul

I am different to most artists because...

my work is contemporary in theme, meditative in process and classical in painterly discipline.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

a soft sigh, a warm smile or an optimistic curiosity

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

trust your senses and enjoy wherever the artwork takes you

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

it reflects the fragile beauty and creative power of the human condition
