Artist Katie Conley spends most days playing in her home studio with oil paint, but she also loves collage, mosaic, and almost all forms of art. She followed her passion in college, studying Studio Art at Indiana University. She earned her master’s degree from the University of Louisville in art education and began teaching art.
Katie lives in Austin with her husband Joe and their two boys. Together they’ve traveled both domestically and internationally, and those travels are often featured in Katie’s art. This fall, she had her first solo show and participated in The East Austin Studio Tour (EAST) and is excited to be included in a collage show in February.
About the Art
Katie processes and appreciates life via her art, so she chooses subjects that are full of joy and color. Katie’s always on the lookout for a scene worth capturing. Katie is an incredibly visual person, so ideas strike her often. She loves finding good composition already existing in her environment, and when she does, she snaps pictures with future paintings in mind. Katie also enjoys doing commissions.
Katie will be showing some of her postage stamp collages at the J Gallery, 7300 Hart Lane, Austin, TX 7873 from February 5-March 19, 2018. Opening reception on Thursday, February 8, 7-8:30pm. For more information visit shalomaustin.org/JGallery

The holidays are upon us and we turn our attentions to the hustle and bustle of this time of year. Sometimes it's a little hard to focus and find your creative time and space in these busy days. Enjoy your families and make your plans and we will get ready for making, selling and moving our art careers forward to the new year.
