  • Cheers to 2015! Bring it on, 2016!

    Cloak and Dagger
    42" x 42", oil on canvas, 2015

    2015 was a big year! I made the leap to painting full time! A terrifying leap at that, but it has been wonderful. Having the time to be in my studio day in and day out,and really focus on my work, has allowed me to explore new ideas, experiment with material, produce more work, and take on more commissions. In all of 2015, I completed over 50 new drawings + paintings! I can't wait to see what 2016 brings. 

    After my English Channel swim in August (I made it!), Joe and I moved to Washington DC! We certainly miss Baltimore, but DC has been a lot of fun. It's the first time in years my studio is outside of my living space, which I like a lot. My studio is big and bright - wonderful for painting. I love guests, so come visit my studio anytime!

    Lots of exciting things ahead for 2016. I have a lot of new work in the works, lots of ideas, and plans for the coming months. 2016 brings some excited exhibitions as well- I will be back in Baltimore for a group show at the Creative Alliance in February, and in May, I will have all new work for a solo show at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in DC. Can't wait!

    Cloak and Dagger, above, is the last painting I finished in 2015. Cheers to a great year! Stay tuned for what 2016 brings. Happy New Year! Cheers!

  • WEIGHTED GAME

    Weighted Game: Solo Exhibition

    March 20 - April 24, 2015

    Case[werks} Showroom & Gallery
    1501 Saint Paul Street Suite 116, Baltimore, MD 21202

    Weighted Game is the first solo exhibition by Baltimore artist, Katie Pumphrey. Featuring all new works, Weighted Game takes on notions of primal response. Investigating the instinct to be competitive, her large-scale oil paintings and drawings challenge the viewer to explore themes of confrontation, reaction, and territory. Through both the imagery depicted and the action-oriented application of her marks on paper and canvas, Pumphrey explores pushing the body to and beyond its limits, its reactions from threats, and the emotions that drive us to compete.

  • Bull @ the DC Design House

    My painting, Bull I, is featured in the Bistro room, designed by Joanne Fitzgerald of Gatéga Interior Design, LLC, at the DC Design House Showcase.

     D.C. Design House in McLean, VA. 24 design firms took up the challenge to transform a 8,869-square-foot mansion that was built to suggest a "modern farmhouse" feel. With this nod to the adjacent Virginia countryside, many designers went with a more rustic feel, choosing wallpapers with felt or wood affixed to them. This year marks the eighth year the annual event has been hosted by DC Living Real Estate, LLC. The home was built by Artisan Builders and designed by Harrison Design. Take a look below to see how each designer was inspired by farmhouse-chic. in McLean, VA through mid May.
