Katyas Art - Art of Ekaterina Mortensen


About the artist

Ekaterina Mortensen  - born and educated in Leningrad (now St Petersburg), USSR and migrated to Australia in 2000. From childhood she had a strong interest and a proven ability in art. Her interest and knowledge developed further when she was employed as a graphic designer in publishing of high quality art books in the Russian State Museum. When Ekaterina migrated to Australia in 2000, she concentrated on Australian landscapes in watercolour, then changed to an emphasis in acrylic with a wide variety of subjects. Ekaterina's solo exhibitions display her versatility and have included flowers, birds, various animals and insects, urban and rural landscapes, and portraits. She does commission paintings such as portraits, pets, and favourite flowers.

Some words about my art

There are so many things that fascinate me  significant views, small details, bright sunsets, pale grey days, young, old. I like life and all the manifestations of nature. This is probably why I find it difficult to prevent myself from depicting all the objects and details I see.

For many years the subject of nature has been inexhaustible for me and remains so, as seen in my paintings of flowers, trees and landscapes. Where my earlier works were mainly watercolours I have in the last few years experimented and settled with acrylics. This medium is very versatile and I believe I still have much to explore in its dimensions. I have explored my belief that everything in the world has its own time.
