About Katy:

Katy Smail was born and raised under the purple skies and scruffy trees of rural Scotland in 1986. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First-Class Honors degree, then moved to Brooklyn, NY where she worked for ten years as an illustrator, painter and art director. Her expressive florals and dreamy portraits have been used across homewares, stationary, publishing and fashion. 

Whilst living amongst the frantic energy of New York City, painting flowers became a way to soothe her nervous system and seek connection to nature. Now, she is back in Scotland, happy to be surrounded by the wild hills and meadows of her roots. She uses painting as a meditation on the magic of the natural world, the feminine energy of mother nature and the ways in which we can find comfort and escape there. Using colour as an emotional language, her paintings ask the viewer to allow their own personal dreamscapes to emerge—a place where the sky can be pink and flowers are a portal to our organic selves. Her work is about surrendering to our inherent wildness, our softness, our dreams.
