Kat Collins is an acclaimed abstract artist based in Easton, Pennsylvania, known for her vibrant and emotionally charged mixed media paintings. Graduating with a BFA from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2000, she has since cultivated a distinctive style characterized by spontaneous mark-making, layered textures, and a rich palette of colors.

Specializing in mixed media, Kat utilizes a diverse array of materials including ink, collage, graphite, oil pastel, acrylic paint, and charcoal on various surfaces such as canvas, paper, and wood panels. This eclectic approach allows her to explore the depths of human emotion and experience, drawing inspiration primarily from life, music, and poetry.

Her work has garnered recognition through exhibitions at esteemed venues such as the Ronald K. De Long Gallery and David E. Rodale and Rodale Family Galleries in Pennsylvania, as well as  Eclipse, Gallery 840, The Boyer Gallery, Midnight Gallery, and Sigal Museum. She has also exhibited at galleries in New Jersey and North Carolina.

Kat's art is a reflection of her deeply subjective and emotional engagement with the world. Represented by Connexions Gallery since 2022, she continues to captivate audiences with her dynamic and evocative compositions, inviting them on a journey of introspection and discovery.


My goal is to infuse each artwork with my deepest emotions. Despite my reservations about revealing my authentic self, driven by fear of rejection, I acknowledge the struggle of embracing vulnerability. It's both daunting and compelling to expose more of myself and my inner world. I'm fueled by a desire to evoke emotional responses from viewers, regardless of the type of feelings stirred. True living, I believe, means fully immersing oneself in the present moment. Through my art, I aim to captivate observers, urging them to question their perceptions and engage fully. If even one person forms a deep connection with my work, prompting them to be wholly present, I'll consider it a significant achievement.

I embrace spontaneity and intuitive creation, eschewing meticulous planning. I engage in a fluid dialogue with the canvas, allowing each brushstroke to guide the next. This process fosters a profound connection, resulting in paintings that speak a deeply personal yet universally resonant language.

Inspired by artists like Willem de Kooning, Jean-Michael Basquiat, and Hilma af Klint, music, and poetry, my paintings exude vitality and emotive depth. I'm drawn to gestural styles and organic shapes that reflect the essence of human experience.

Utilizing mixed media, I experiment with acrylics, markers, collage, charcoal, graphite, ink, and more, capturing the complexity of emotion through layering and texture. Each painting is a journey into the unknown, inviting contemplation and reflection.

The canvas itself becomes a terrain of exploration, with textures and hues mirroring life's duality. Through my work, I aim to capture human emotion in all its complexity, offering viewers solace and inspiration in the shared human experience.
