About the Artist:
At the age of 12, Katherine Galbraith began her career as an artist with the sale of a portrait painting. Now in addition to figurative work and commissioned portraiture, she also paints in studio and plein air landscapes and still lifes.
Katherine has had numerous one-woman shows in Atlanta, GA, Boston, MA, St. Simons Island and Sea Island, GA, Bronxsville, NY and Pittsburgh, PA. In May 2013 Katherine opened The Station Art Gallery & Studio of Katherine Galbraith to showcase her work and offer classes. It is located in the restored NY Central Passenger Depot in Westfield, NY.
Portraiture clients have included corporate executives, leaders of religious and academic institutions and athletes. Many clients have later commissioned Katherine to paint members of their families.
Her work can be found in private collections all over the world. First favorably compared to John Singer Sargent’s in a review of her one-woman show in Raleigh, NC, Katherine’s work has appeared in national magazines, including International Artists Magazine, Art of the Portrait, Fine Art Connoisseur, Veranda, Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Where: Boston, Coastal Living and Coastal Illustrated.
In September 2016, Katherine was featured Guest Artist at the Portrait Society of Atlanta to lecture and demonstrate portrait painting in oils, the medium she most often uses in her work.
