Born in 1969, Katie Scorgie is an established equestrian artist whose work is becoming increasingly sought after.
Following her passion to become an equestrian artist, Katie completed both a Foundation and a Degree in Fine Art. She has an empathetic understanding of horses as she has ridden from a young age, including a career as a point to point jockey. Therefore, it is natural for her to translate this knowledge into fine art painting. Katie captures movement, true likeness and essence of a given situation in an unsentimental way, through lively marks, brush strokes and strong drawing. She does this by addressing all aspects of the subject to capture its energy. Katie strives to make the viewer feel that they could be standing at that moment in time, as well as enjoying the make up of the painting, or drawing, in its own right. Her love of paint and subject matter is evident in equal measure.
Katie has exhibited widely since 2000 - her most notable commission to date is being one of 3 Artists in Residence to the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment between 2011-2012, resulting in an exhibition at Hyde Park Barracks in April 2012. Katie's work has also been covered in the media and she welcomes commissions.
