Shadow Work Portraits
Katie Blackwell, RN, BSN, ARTIST
Welcome! My name is Katie and I am a Nurse, and an Artist, occasionally I combine the two. This year my focus has been on painting my fellow Health Care Workers through the Pandemic. This acts as a unique time stamp of your place in history, but also a forever reminder that you are a badass, that you are empowered by simply getting up in the morning and doing what you have put yourself on the path of doing, that just by going to work everyday, you truly make a difference in the lives around you.
This year has sucked in many ways. It helps to remember all of it. The good, the bad, the ugly and the baddassery. This is a good metaphor for how I paint. When I paint a subject, I replicate only what is in front of me, no judgment, just observation. People often tell me how beautiful and full of life my portraits are...that is because YOU are beautiful and full of life. I paint all of you, mind, body, and spirit. That is why my business is named 'Shadow Work' Portraits. This is a term coined by Carl Jung that perfectly expressed my process in art and the mind I strive to maintain...We are not only light but also dark and all the shades in between. In loving and accepting each layer, we can most authentically and fully be and be seen as ourselves. So let me show you what beauty I see when I see you so that you can remember what an incredible badass you are.
