Katie Hillman was drawing on her parents’ walls and furniture before she could talk.

While working towards a BFA, she developed a particular interest in illustration- this led her to study at the Edinburgh College of Art.
Originally a sculptor working with clay, Mohamed currently uses oil, pastel and acrylic colors to convey his thoughts. He did both portraits and landscape painting and always keep enough room for the viewer to create their own interpretations of the artwork.
My practice of painting includes formal art practices, acquired knowledge, new findings, influences, personal experiences, encounters, visuals, and non-visuals elements. The artist begins, the painting takes over; sub-conscious and conscious move together, sometimes over long periods of time.
Cailin enjoys working with various media – including acrylic, oils, found objects, and mixed media – to explore form and pattern in both abstract and realism. Her subject matter is often inspired by nature or geometric pattern, or both intertwined.

My work may be characterized by concerns and concepts such as entrapment, restriction, escape, getaway, separation and partition. Several times I refer to a past which the present could not change.
