Inspired by French and Italian countrysides and her Southern Oregon surroundings, Katharine Gracey’s art is filled with sun-drenched colors that create charming, elegant and whimsical landscapes and vignettes.
Raised in the Midwest, Katharine started painting at an early age, absorbing the peaceful farm life of the Great Lakes. After earning her art degree from the University of Wisconsin, she pursued painting as her main focus, specializing in watercolor, acrylic and oils. Relocating to the famous wine region of Napa Valley, California, Katharine started various successful businesses; a retail garden store, a floral company, design and manufacturing hand-painted furniture, licensing much of her artwork.
Katharine continues to explore new themes from the whimsical to creative realism. A successful artist and designer, her home and artwork in Jacksonville, Oregon has been featured in Victoria Magazine, Romantic Homes and Distinctly Northwest.
