Katheryn Holt paints memory. Her abstract paintings are infused with half-remembered landscapes.
She has been documenting her interior and exterior life through painting since she was 4 years old.
Growing up on Hermosa Beach, Los Angeles, in the 1950s and 1960s, Katheryn's frame of visual references was formed both by horizon lines extending across a seemingly endless Pacific Ocean and the cultural influences of post-World War 2 America.
She studied painting at the University of Southern California and graduated with a BFA from Art Center College of Design.
She taught at New York’s School of Visual Arts, has won awards from the Society of Illustrators, and was included in American Illustrator and Outstanding American Illustrators.
Katheryn has exhibited in many solo and group shows, including eight shows at Tria Gallery, New York; national juried competitions including the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, the Santa Cruz Art League, and the Bolinas Museum; and was featured in a recent display in the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco.
Her work has been shown in New York, Germany, Texas, Georgia, Colorado, and California.
