Katherine Lewis is an artist from Mendocino, California, working in large format for originals and illustration for print and publishing. She studied art and design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and Impressionist painting at the Marchutz School of Art in Aix-en-Provence, France. She began her company, Ingrid Press, in 2017 which sells products to hundreds of stores in North America as well as to retail customers online.
"Studying Impressionism in France taught me to focus on the balance of the whole piece instead of any one part and how the brushstrokes can convey our emotions. I get a lot of enjoyment from physically putting the paint down and seeing how the colors react and how different textures lay down beside each other like a weaving. I love storytelling and painting nature, with the interactions between people, animals and plants as well as the changing of the seasons."
