Biography


British-born Katherine Uitz grew up in a small town in Texas. Her parents encouraged the budding young artist, providing her with various art mediums with which to experiment. Summer family trips to national parks nurtured Katherine's love for the great outdoors and a fascination with the way of life in the old west. Katherine's first art shows and commissioned paintings and drawings were during her high school years.
