Katherine Houston

"Much like trying to hold on to sand in your hand, control is the surprising outcome of letting go. It is this push-and-pull that drives me to make my art. By fully relenting to my work, I somehow gain control."

Katherine Houston is a native Houstonian who has spent the majority of her life in the Houston area.  Katherine began her career as an investment broker in the late 70’s.  She left this career in the late 80’s to begin a family. Katherine has devoted much of the past 20 years to studying and producing art. Her studies have included institutions such as The University of Houston, Glassell School of Art and The Art League; she also studied privately with a number of renowned artists, such as Will Clem, Ruth Munson, Polly Liu, Gary Hernandez, Quang Ho and Steve Aimone

Katherine has worked with a number of mediums, grounds, and styles of painting. She explores abstract and bold scenery as motifs to describe the idea of infinite space. Her abstract paintings usually start with a color idea and then evolve into compositions in which color is the primary subject.   Currently, she is participating in a number of art exhibits and galleries in Houston, Dallas, Austin and the Washington D.C. area.  Her goals are to continue her education in the art world with particular focus on abstract painting.

Katherine’s work is held by a number of collectors both private and corporate.
