Artist Profiles » Katie Trinkle Legge

Katie Trinkle LeggeKatie was born in New York in 1965. She graduated with her BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1988. She began exhibiting her work professionally shortly after her graduation.

She has recently moved to New Zealand from Nantucket Island in the United States. Her husband Darren grew up in Auckland. Currently her home and studio are on Waiheke Island.

Primarily Katie works in oil paint. Each piece begins with a charcoal sketch and thin layers of paint. Once she is satisfied with the balance and strength of the composition, bold thicker layers of paint are added. This creates a painterly realism that has become distinctly her own.

Her bold use of color and large-scale compositions give her work a contemporary edge. Choosing to use strong light and changing the scale of an ordinary object infuses the scene with drama and strength.
