About Katie Battersby



Katie Battersby is an artist based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Her background is a graduate of Elam School of Fine Arts, an art and art history teacher, the founder of a clothing label and the mother of three teenagers. Her practice is informed by nature, pattern making, textile design and the physicality of painting itself. Her work explores a visual language combining compositional structure, serendipity and chance. Fluidity is central to her enquiry, presenting, revealing obscuring and transitioning between layers, forms and states.
