Welcome to my online gallery + shop! I'm Katie Humphress, a contemporary impressionist artist in Lexington, KY.  I paint for the joy of it, and I'm so glad you're here!

My Story

My first oil painting class was in Molly's School of Art, and it changed my life. Molly, my teacher and mentor, was trained by Ritchie Cooper - one of Norman Rockwell's assistants. 


When I started painting, Molly always asked me "Where is the Light Source?" 


The question became my answer. I learned from Molly that art is spiritual. She taught me to consider the shadows, and notice the contrast light brings.


I've found this so healing when life doesn't make sense. When I look for the light source in my paintings, I find the Light Source in my life.



I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
