Hey,  thank you for exploring my Patreon page.

I am Kat and I´m a visual artist creating paintings/illustrations and photography inspired by nature and the outdoors.

I´ve been drawing and painting since I was very young. Creating art has always put me in a meditative state and during the workflow, I experienced art always as a place which is free of judgment, with no right or wrong, but simply as a creating space. Starting with rather realistic drawings, I changed after a while first to acrylic pointillism portraits and later to abstract paintings and illustrations, which main themes are adventure and the deep sea. I quickly realised that blue is causing intense emotions in me, which no other color was able to. Its vibrant effect on me, made it to my main color, which you can see in basically most of my art. But then the time came when I started to doubt my art and got stuck in a pretty uncreative and depressive mood.

I decided I have to make a change, leave home and get new inspirations. And thats where my love for photography awoke. I spend 3 year exploring this beautiful world, where I lived most of the time surrounded by my personal energetic place, the ocean.
It was my first diving experiences in Honduras, where suddenly a complete new world opened to me and I knew clearly that I can´t go back home again as early as planned. I was lucky enough to continue diving in places like Belize, Mexico, Vanuatu and the Philippines. Diving and exploring had since then a huge healing and inspirationally effect on me and I realised I have to go on and explore, adventure and be creative. The final crux was for sure the moment when I started to live for 1 1/2-years on a little 33ft. sailing boat and sailed 10.000NM from New Zealand to Japan. I knew, this wasnt just a long-time-travel, it became my life.

All those experiences helped me to reconnect with myself again and were my way out of depression that plagued my mind back home. The experiences and encounters with people and nature gave me new inspirations and insights into life and pushed me constantly forward and allowed me to grow.

After some time, I decided to go back home and educate myself again in University, but life here was suddenly filled with routine and stress and my head started to turn messy again.

I needed to make a decision and listen to my inner self.
What do I really want?

I knew, I needed to go out again and do what I believe in, leave the comfort zone. I packed my stuff and moved up far north, over the polar circle to Norway. Here I have space to breathe and time to focus on making art.

With your help, I can continue to travel and share images from our beautiful natural world. Your support means I can invest the majority of my time in my creative process and make a living out of my passion.


Thank you for your love and support,
Kat.
