Katrin Snæhólm Baldursdottir
About the Artist
Katrín Snæhólm Baldursdóttir is an Icelandic artist born in 1963 in a town just outside Reykjavik called Hafnarfjordur. At the age of 37 she moved to England with her family where she studied visual arts and sculpture for 4 years at Emerson College. The course was built on theories from Rudolf Steiner. Then Katrín did her MA in contemporary arts in Oxford Brookes University specialised in Social sculpture, following Joseph Beuys.
Katrín paints because she has the urge to tell stories through forms and colours and to invite people to her spirit world. She never knows where the intuitive painting journey is going to take her but she listens carefully to different storytellers from other dimensions and different worlds and stays true to their beings and gives birth to them and their stories in her paintings.
After Katrin was diagnosed with a burnout in 2015, she couldn’t do anything, her body was in pain and her brain lost in a fog. “The art has been my healing, to paint has helped me back to my purpose and my muses have guided me back to health with colours, stories and creativity,” she said, “I know this world needs art in all forms to heal and we as humans can use art to connect to who we are. We are amazing creative creatures who just can’t thrive without art. We are all artists”
