Katherine Whelan is a strong believer in following your passions, nurturing a healthy ego, as well as bridging the gap between limited edition original artwork and affordable artwork. Her latest venture (Est. 1998) fulfils a long time dream of creating art and starting an art business - Make it POP – Art. As a teenager Katherine excelled in art subjects, however, due to personal and financial obstacles, was unable to pursue art as a career. Although Katherine went on to achieve academic and professional excellence in roles focusing on human psychology, in her private time she continued to produce art (sculpture, drawing, digital illustration) and develop her artistic skills. A product of the combination of Katherine’s expertise in psychology and love of pop art; Katherine’s art is influenced by her passion to express how we ‘feel’ as a people, rather than what we ‘do’. Katherine believes that how we react ‘emotionally’ to the world around us, compared to how we ‘act’, represents more honestly our mindset & the future of our society. Through imagery & the title of her artworks, Katherine illustrates her take on important and popular human attitudes. Each artwork is created by hand (digital illustration): separation of image layers; application of colour & textures; and her artistic choices deliberately break away from some traditional Pop art rules & techniques. In summary, Katherine’s creations are driven by her personal interpretation of the ‘the mood of the people’. She only produces limited edition artwork, One of 22 by KW or One of 2 by KW; because she believes that meaningful art, like the expression of one’s true feelings, is often rare.
