Katy Jade Dobson is a UK based oil painter, originally from Yorkshire but currently resides in the town of Lincoln. Katy spent her childhood feeding her love for art with a self-taught approach to drawing and painting, focusing largely on ethereal portraits or detailed sketches, only then pursued this throughout her education life to the University of Lincoln. After working in bars for 2 years, Katy began painting in several mediums from acrylic to watercolours in mixed media canvas pieces on the side, often attending art events and fairs with her work. The positive reaction to Katy's wildlife work led to a large shift towards oil paints as her medium of choice. After finding the rich tones and infinite possibilities with texture, oils became the fast medium of choice and thereafter became a huge part of Katy's development and work as an artist.
