Katie Roberts creates paintings depicting nature.

Roberts will demonstrates how she creates her nature paintings with water-mixable oil and describe crafting her live-edge frames. Her paintings are inspired by the native forest areas and wildlife. Roberts has exhibited in the twin states, including at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Equinox Village, and the Artistree and received the second place award from the Beaver Brook Association as well as the People’s Choice and Best Riparian Awards from the Vermont Institute of Natural Science.

Roberts is a member of Artists for Conservation, the world’s leading artist group supporting the environment. Roberts said, “My pieces have a large part of sustainability to them. In addition to being painted with water mixable oil paints, they are also housed in my live-edge frames, which I design and create with rescued slab wood directly from local saw mills. My prints are on bamboo art paper and my cards are printed on 100% recycled paper.”

Roberts routinely donates a percentage of each sale to wildlife conservation. She states, “Nature can’t communicate its needs; I feel as though my artwork visually speaks for it, that I just pass on the message.”
