Katie Heffelfinger

Katie Heffelfinger’s watercolor based paintings are inspired by the art of Aboriginal predecessors such as Dorothy Napangardi and other Napangardi sisters. Her work strives to echo their ability to create a visual language from the sparse yet striking visual and natural elements that define life and cosmology in the Outback. From this point, Katie’s work dives into the psychology of pattern, wherein the range of watercolor washes and applciation of heavy duty latex paint express a range of elegant, earthly abstraction.
