Katie Bradford Osborne
A native of the Florida panhandle, Katie has left a piece of her heart everywhere she has lived- St Augustine, FL, West Virginia, Philadelphia, Denver, and most recently, Houston, Texas.
Katie completed her business degree at the University of Florida and, after a year in a high rise in Philadelphia, she followed her heart to an art degree at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Although focused in photography, she drank in lessons in color theory, drawing, design, art history, art psychology, and the elements of photography that she still sees pop up in her art.
After a successful career start in fine art portrait photography and branding design for other creatives, Katie once again followed her heart into mixed media art, starting with a jewelry line and eventually settling into her current practice of abstract art on canvas, paper, and silk.
Over the past 10 years, Katie’s work has shown at the Sketch Club in Philadelphia, Gallery 13 in Asbury Park, NJ, Core Art Space and Kanon Collective in Denver, CO. Most recently, Katie’s first solo show, Connections, was displayed in Houston, Tx. She has also currated the pop-up gallery, Women of Heart, in Philadelphia, PA as well as events for the Denver Photo Betties, a group she founded in 2013.
