About the Artist


My recent paintings are about personal space. They are a window into those intimate moments that from the viewpoint of the observer can only be left to the imagination.
Absorbed in moments of creation and reflection, the individuals exist for themselves, unaware that they are being watched. The subject of my work is not so much the individuals that I paint, but the dialog between themselves and their surroundings.


Katy Unger was born in 1981 in Boulder, Colorado. She received her BFA from the Pacific NW College of Art in Portland, Oregon in 2003 and currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Her work is celebrated for her representational use of acrylics to capture the depth of light and skin.
