About the Artist
My work is displayed in Southern California galleries and national juried shows, as well as in private and corporate collections. Inspired by my travels as well as everyday scenes, I create a series of oil paintings for all my subjects. I paint landscapes, figures, portraits and animals, and one of my specialties is pet portraits. I enjoy capturing special moments of our lives on canvas, whether it’s a sunset, wedding, birth, or a dog with a favorite toy.
My goal is to be technically proficient without losing the freshness of my painting, no matter what the subject, keeping my style unique and recognizable in all of my work. Please see my website studiokatz.com for a complete portfolio, awards, and current shows.
In addition to my online portfolio, I have recently been juried into the Spanish Village Art Center as an artist member and I am one of only 8 artists exhibiting in the La Jolla Secret Garden tour 2018. I also was asked to judge the "Doggone Days of Summer" show at the Brandon Gallery in Fallbrook and I have given "How to Promote your Art" presentations at various art guilds. I was one of the featured artists at the 2017 Coronado Artwalk and I have won awards at various juried shows such as the 2017San Diego County Fair Fine Art Exhibit, 2017 Catnip Connection 11 , and the Doggone Art Show at Gallery 21.
