Katrina Avotina has been painting professionally more than 20 years. Currently based in Leeds, she works with acrylic colours.
The works were created mainly during her travels and each piece tells its own story – some are about the mountains of Tuscany and the cathedrals of Italy; others are stories about Britain’s gardens, a cat that brings warmth and peace to a home or a woman waiting for the love of her life.
She says: “I wish to spread beauty in the world and to bring happiness to people through my paintings. I hope that all those who view my works feel the love I portray.”
