“7 Pumpkins & Purple Planter”
15 3/4 x 23 5/8 in.
A perpetual wanderer and nature-lover, Katerina Ring now lives and paints in
Zambia and Italy. Her subject matter and media have evolved over the past 20
years from very detailed Tuscan still lifes in watercolor to pastel landscapes
on textured surfaces, to semi-impressionistic and abstract oils of animal and
plant life. Throughout, there has always been a graphic element to her work,
and an obvious love for rich colors.
Her paintings in Italy aim to honor the architecture (and its harmony within
the natural surroundings) of centuries of genius and craft. The work which she
produces in Zambia ties together two of her life’s passions: design and
animals. Through her paintings Katerina aims to express her wonder at these
two worlds, and create awareness and appreciation of history’s importance
and nature’s fragility.
