Katherine Dunlap was born 1990 in Gainesville, Georgia. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from the University of Georgia in 2013 and currently has a studio in Charleston, S.C.
Katherine is sensitive to the ways in which our natural environment shapes first-person experience. She is not only interested in the physical and aesthetic details of our surroundings, but our emotional response to their presence. Whether it be an idealized memory associated with a specific location or an instinctive reaction to a natural space, her work seeks to marry the physical and emotional forms of her environment.
