“Your work resonates with me because of its authenticity. Your life and painting hold together. There is always a sense of place, and your love of these places and creatures is obvious.”
– Mary Karnezos, painter and art collector, Mukushi, Zambia


“Katerina, think of you often–we have your peaches painting in our kitchen…. See you next year in Cortona!!! xoxxo”
– Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun, and numerous other best sellers


I am a painter of authentic Italian landscapes, African wildlife and scenes from Italy and Zambia.  I work both “en plein air” (outside in front of the subject) and in my studios using oil and pastel, creating paintings for the discriminating collector.  Please browse my portfolio of work, learn more about me, and contact me with any questions or to make a purchase.
