Katherine Carney is a painter who loves coastal life. She grew up on the coast of Rhode Island until she moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland at a young age. Living in the quiet town of Oxford, where her father was a marine biologist, provided the perfect foundation for both her interest in marine life and her passion for art to thrive.  Katherine attended the University of Maryland where she received a BS in Advertising Design. 

While Katherine is best known for her coastal and farm art, she is Influenced by the scenes that surround her. Katherine’s subjects are varied, including sailing, landscapes, seascapes, shells, boats, farms, and animals. She recognizes she is a realist with an impressionistic view and feels that less detail and more suggestion of, works best for her art and gives her viewer a fresh perspective.

Other than painting, her hobbies include: active sports like running, cycling, kayaking and of course – beaching. You can also find her husband, her lab, Sophie and her walking, exploring, and enjoying the many Maryland and Delaware seashore parks.
