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.
