Katie Chichester Mester
Katie Chichester Mester grew up on a farm in rural Michigan. Thus, she was immersed in a life of pastoral scenes of cattle, sheep, and beautiful countryside.
As an oil painter, Mester uses both brush and palette knife to recreate notable scenes of domestic life and landscapes. Mester’s passionate style of natural realism portrays her subjects with correctness in structure and placement but vivacity in exciting color, intense light, and heavy texture.
