DIGITAL COLLAGES BY KAT TEMPLETON

I am a raw art expressionist from the Pacific Northwest that creates in a world of vivid colour. I describe my artwork as, deep, untamed, raw emotion. Visual art is a platform for me to challenge traditions, explore new ways of seeing, and share to the world the beauty of abstracted thinking and creating. I seek to pull the viewer into an environment that is alive and moving, swaying, and playing. Never still. I am non traditional artist, which has granted me opportunities to create artwork for gallery exhibitions, private commissions, literary magazines, theatre productions, film and fashion.

 

Kat says, "Never stop pushing boundaries with your medium, Don't be afraid to embrace the chaos, break the rules, be raw, and be passionate! Inspiration, innovation, and heart defines the artist."
