Celebrating Life's Small Moments in Vivid Color
I am Katherine Rodgers, and my passion lies in capturing the elusive beauty of the world around us through the gentle yet powerful medium of watercolor. Watercolor, to me, is more than just a technique; it is a dance between intention and spontaneity. With each artwork, I seek to embrace the inherent unpredictability of the medium, allowing the colors to merge and flow organically, creating an enchanting harmony that mirrors the natural world's organic rhythms. My brush glides across the paper with a sense of fluidity, embracing both control and release as I strive to breathe life into my subjects; the delicate petals of a flower, the interplay of light and shadow on a landscape, or the feathers on a bird.
For the last 20 years, my family of five have moved a total of ten times and we have lived all over the country and in different parts of the world. Even though I went to college to become a nurse, my passion for art was always a part of me and I consider myself to be a self-taught artist. When we landed in Washington, DC, in 2016, I put together my studio and started to paint and share my work with friends. This soon landed me in galleries, art shows, and exhibitions around my area and in New York.
My love for watercolor brought me to many local art groups and I found my new friends in the art community. The constant moves and changes in scenery has made nature my greatest muse, and I find myself irresistibly drawn to the intricate details and subtleties that exist in every corner of our environment. My artistic process is one of mindful observation and emotional immersion. Watercolor's luminous and transparent qualities allow me to convey a sense of translucence and depth, inviting viewers to peer into the layers of each painting and discover hidden nuances. My intention is to evoke a feeling of serenity and tranquility and a chance to rediscover the simple yet profound beauty that exists in our midst.
I currently reside in Houston, Texas, where I teach watercolor to beginners through one of the local art societies. I work and teach private students in my studio east of downtown where I am inspired by the urban landscape and am surrounded by other local artists.
Through the encouragement of a close friend, I began teaching watercolor classes and have taught over 100 students and I can now be found on SkillShare
where more than 500 students have taken my watercolor classes. If you are interested in taking private lessons, please contact me!
