A native of Oxford, Mississippi, Katherine Arrechea

Reed, began her art career in high school as a

hobby, drawing charcoal sketches of local historic

buildings and experimenting with portraits of well

known personalities. However, textured paintings in

acrylic on canvas soon became the medium she

used to best capture a variety of subjects including

her love of all things great and small.

Her art is influenced by the events and people she

experiences on her daily journey through life. From

the wonder of children to the complexity of life that

exists in nature, she strives to recreate a memory or

a glimpse of life that can become a life of its own.


Art is living, stopped for a moment of wonder.
-Kenneth G. Mills
