My name is Katharine Alecse.  I'm an oil painter who specializes in life-size hyperrealism.  I'm based out of the UNESCO village Viscri in Transylvania, Romania. 

I'm American Born from outside of Cincinnatie, Ohio.  Formerly Katie Buckett and Katie Ng, I lived in London for 7 years and before that in Brooklyn NYC where I received a BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute.

My work is extremely important to my life.  I celebrate light and life with every new project ranging from a renaissance style portrait to a gorilla smoking a cigar.  I want to create a dreamscape where the viewer can let their mind wander free.

I am a full-time artist who also makes time for customized commissions.  I'm friendly too!  Contact me on all the various social media sites and I hope to see you at the next exhibition : )
