Katy Sullivan is a leading figurative artist who interweaves elements of magic realism with a love of the English wilderness.
She is the Great grand daughter of Charles J Allen, a major figure in the New Sculpture movement. As a child she would study his bronzes and wonder how it would feel to create something so intricate and beautiful. Growing up in a house filled with art no doubt inspired her work.
Since leaving a medical career in 2005, her work has gathered much attention. In 2008 she won the Public Choice award for the Holburne Portrait prize and in 2011 her work was featured on the BBC 2 programme “Show me the Monet”. Her work has sold all over the world, most notably in New York.
