Bloom From Within

Katie O’Brien is an award-winning Illustrator/Painter/Art Instructor from the Southwest Side of Chicago. She has studied at both American Academy of Art and Columbia College Chicago. O’Brien is visual artist, known for her surrealism pieces and portraits. Her expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity is inspired by her love for the abstract. Since 2017, she has carved out an original niche as Copic and Sharpie marker artist. O’Brien participates regularly in various Midwest art shows and her work can be found and is sold in galleries all throughout the Chicagoland area and as well as across the country. Social media has proven to be an imperative part of her career as a commission-based artist, with a solid follower base she sells many memorial portraits of loved ones that have passed, (human and furry) through her Instagram page as well as original pieces and prints.
