"Much like improv, my canvases are unscripted and often left in a state of dynamic incompletion. Trusting my inner voice, and putting my ego away, I can flood color, make marks, react honestly and support choices…having no specified goal. It’s about letting ideas flow with the suspension of judgement."
Abstract Expressionist painter Katie Ré Scheidt was born in New York City and
raised in Bronxville, NY. Scheidt had a thirteen-year career on Wall Street as an
Equity sales trader, and began her professional art career while living in Roxbury,
CT, where she has lived for the past ten years with her family.
Scheidt has built a robust commission business specializing in abstracts,
portraiture and nudes. Her gestural figures are both lyrical and romantic, and at the
same time they engage a powerful conversation with the present. Amid layered
fields of color and expressive strokes of pigment, bare canvas and fragile charcoal
lines, her imagery bursts before you as painterly moments come together to create a
whole. Scheidt’s use of color is both sumptuous and candid, lending a lush
choreography to her work.
Scheidt's work can be found in private collections worldwide. Her work
currently hangs at Relais & Chateaux hotels in New England like Winvian Farm in
Litchfield Hills, CT and Auberge resorts like The Mayflower Inn & Spa in
