HAND PAINTED FURNITURE

A self taught artist, Katinka branched out into painted furniture after travelling to France in 2018. Stumbling across a beautiful hand painted chest of draws, she has since gone on to develop her own style of ‘furniture art’. Producing stunning high quality pieces, each one totally unique, they can be painted with anything from a modern Moroccan inspired pattern to traditional trompe l'oeil butterflies and bumble bees.

A contemporary artist, Katinka focuses on repurposing and restoring second hand furniture otherwise destined for landfill. The artist lovingly restores and repurposes unwanted wooden pieces, up-cycling them into unique works of art. Going way beyond giving them just ‘a lick of paint’, Katinka turns each one into incredibly detailed and much admired artworks. When repainting furniture the artist uses wood filler on any major imperfections, but small marks are left to insure the history and character of the piece remains.

 

Continuing to produce a small selection of personally sourced pieces available through her pop-up shops and local Dorset Arts Weeks, the artist continues to use her travel as inspiration and is currently combining vibrant overseas influences into her work.
