kate flückinger petty


Seattle born Kate Flückinger Petty works mostly in oil paints. Her paintings evolve intuitively into nonobjective forms and spaces, at times abstracted landscapes and figures. Drawn to organic matter and processes, disintegrating structures, and liminality, she strives to convey a kind of meaningful chaos. Kate's approach is physical and spontaneous, joining gestural brushwork and rich color to build compositions.


A big piece of her heart: since 2007, Kate has volunteered providing confidential emotional support to women living in prison. In the spring of 2024 she is expanding this program to include a project called Painting Inside Prison, where she will guide participants in using creative self-expression for self-care, to process grief, tell their story (in private abstract ways), and honor their feelings and experiences. Kate believes there is restorative power in creativity.
