Average height, brown hair, dark eyes. Katja is a painter, born 1979 in Murska Sobota, Slovenia. Her adventure on the battlefield called Art begun as early as her high school years when she joined LindArt-Young Artists Association in 1995. This gesture highly determined her artistic path while giving an opportunity to be engaged in the regional art scene on both sides of Slovenian-Hungarian border. She annually attended summer Fine Arts Symposiums and participated on numerous group exhibitions, both nationally and internationally.
2003 Katja undertook a student exchange to Dublin’s National College of Art and Design. Being exposed to this culture shock – i.e. different teaching methods gradually purified her artistic expression and interest, bringing clean colours, space and manipulation of perception into the center of her research. 2010 she received her MFA in Painting from Academy of Fine Arts, Ljubljana and since travels the world as a freelancer.
While her artistic research regularly deals with the relationship between a painting and its beholder, the means that she uses to address the viewer unpredictably vary: from humorous almost illustrative imagery all the way to geometrical illusionism.
