Katie O'Rourke Contemporary Visual Artist
A master of acrylic pour art.
The Resilience of Birch Trees
Birch trees are among the most resilient trees. They bend and flex with the strongest winds or under heavy snow. They cut a sharp line between reality and our imaginations.
These graceful trees inspire Montpelier, Vermont artist Katie O'Rourke's current body of work. Katie works with fluid acrylic paints, pouring mediums, resists, and resin to create dreamlike forest scenes. Her paintings show the balance between calculation and letting go.
The Life of an Artist
Katie feels meditative at work in her Montpelier studio. It's where she goes to shut off the world. Whenever possible, she travels the country in an RV with her husband, two children, and their pug. She integrates inspiration found from the northen woods, the high desert, and dramatic coastal shores into her art.
