Katy Papineau is a figurative painter and art tutor who lives and works in London. Katy filters her observations of the world through her imagination, to result in a personal and embellished depiction of ordinary life. She is concerned with themes of intimacy, connection, and decoration. She works with paint that she hand mixes from dry pigment, building up areas of colour and pattern to result in a richly textured surface.
In 2019, Katy completed The Drawing Year, a postgraduate-level course at The Royal Drawing School. Since graduating she has taken part in several group shows, sold her work with Liberty London, presented for Tate, appeared on Portrait Artist of The Year, and worked on regular commissions for private clients. She also teaches on the Young Artists Programme at The Royal Drawing School.
