KATRIN SMITH
MODERN ART FOR CONTEMPORARY SPACES

Welcome to my online gallery of original contemporary abstract art and original one-of-a-kind hand pulled fine art prints.  

My current art practice is focused on fine art printmaking.   Using various techniques such as etching, drypoint, lithography, collography, linocut and monotypes, my goal is to make the invisible visible.   Driven by curiosity and a love for the abstract, I explore and play with line, form and colour to create artworks to make you think, feel and engage with my art.   

Printmaking is magic and I want people to fall in love with this fine art medium just as I have !

Please visit my artwork pages and enjoy.
