Wallpaper Wednesdays 7 | Katelyn Morse
This week's featured artist is Katelyn Morse from Nova Scotia, Canada. Her pieces struck a chord with me, so I invited her to be featured this week. Her work is so ethereal and calming to look at, and I just adore her feather illustrations and mountain landscapes. I can only imagine how stunning it would be to view sites that majestic in person one day.
Nature is so inspiring and, I feel, can bring out the best in us an an authenticity that nothing else could. Getting one-on-one with nature and being observant to it brings a peace that can't be described.
I love how Katelyn created these minimalist paintings with wood. If you're loving her work so far, she's created four beautiful wallpapers for you guys to enjoy towards the end of this post. First, let's see what she had to say for our Q&A.
1. DID YOU ALWAYS HAVE A PASSION FOR ART AND WHEN DID YOU START PURSUING IT?
I have always loved to draw since I was very young - almost every day I would draw animals, people, flowers etc. It was not until one year ago that I started pursuing it as a career option. So happy I did!
2. WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?
I find inspiration in nature. The prettiest foliage and the intricate flowers always catch my eye. Animals as well!
3. WHAT MEDIUMS DO YOU USE?
I use mostly acrylic paint, and watercolor paint. Looking into trying out oil!
4. IN THREE WORDS, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF ART?
Boho, Earthy, and Girly.
5. DO YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE CREATING ART? IF SO, WHAT’S ON YOUR PLAYLIST?
If I'm listening to music it's either Jack Johnson or a playlist of forest sounds!
6. DESCRIBE YOUR MOST TREASURED ART PIECE TO DATE - ONE THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF.
I painted a large circular piece of wood and filled it with evergreen trees and a body of water with the trees reflection in it, with a little fawn hiding in the trees. I absolutely love that piece and it will hang in my living room for years to come!
7. NAME ONE ARTIST YOU ADMIRE.
Emily Jeffords. I feel a sense of calmness and peace when I look at her paintings.
8. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO EMERGING ARTISTS?
Don't stop creating. Do do do. Don't give up, be kind to all and love the process. Find what you're good at and hone it - get your art out there in as many places that you can and be bold!
9. WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS?
In 5 years I hope to have my own studio and be shipping my paintings all over the world! I will be 29 in 5 years - so I also hope that my husband and I will own our house by the lake and start raising a fam.
10. IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW, WHERE WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
Banff. I'll be there in a week. I just want to be there right now! On top of a mountain looking down at the amazing world at which we live in!
