“I create art because it’s a part of who I am. It’s a passion that wants to be recognized, with a strong voice that says, ‘I am here.’ Clay has a voice, paint has a voice, and in fact, anything that can be integrated into a piece of art has one.

Katrina Brennan is a painter and sculptor on a mission to create art that not only generates a connection between the viewer and the work, but also encourages the viewer to question the reality of the world we live in. Her paintings are expressive, and conceptual, with bold colors, flowing lines, and subjects that have a Steam-punk appeal. Her sculptures are often metaphorical, representing tall male and female figures that allude to both Western and Eastern culture. They symbolize a vast array of connections between human life and the universe.
COMMISSION A PORTRAIT
A hand painted portrait in oil can be a treasured keepsake for years to come. Family members will pass it down through the generations and will provide many stories for children and grandchildren. If you would like Katrina to paint a portrait for you, contact her by phone or email and she will discuss your ideas and options with you.
At this time, Katrina lives in Spokane, and does not travel to do commissions, only working within her studio. However, plein air sittings are possible when weather permits. Katrina is willing to travel a short distance to meet with clients for a consultation.

They start off as lumps of clay, are formed and then given a name. They are nomads, fertility goddesses, painted spirits and totems that emerge from the earthy medium almost instinctually by artist Katrina Brennan. “For me, clay is my passion, and its voice speaks loud and clear. It’s my job to listen to it the moment I touch it, and respect its wishes,” Brennan explained in her artist’s statement. “If it wants to be an ancient unclothed woman welcoming death in the form of a raven, so be it. If it wants to be a pot with a network of human organs carved on its front, I listen. Who am I to judge?”
WHAT THEY SAY
“I have admired Katrina’s artwork since I first saw samples of her murals and portraits almost five years ago. All of her work demonstrates her artistic skill, patience, insight, and attention to detail. I am moved in some way by each of her pieces. I sense the spirituality and life that I know Katrina instills in her work.” — Dan Williams
