Katie Scorgie – Fine Artist

Welcome to my website. Thank you for taking the time to visit.

I have been painting full time since graduating with a Degree in Fine Art from Plymouth University in 2000.  I am known as an established and renowned fine artist, with equestrian, landscape and canine being my main subjects.  

Having ridden for most of my life, including in point to points, I have an unconscious knowledge of horses whicih conmes out in my portrayal of all things equine.  My style is said to be unique and instantly recognisable, which I achieve through instinctive, vigorous mark-making, strong draughtsmanship and channelling, bringing the essence and spirit of my subjects alive. Everything in the composition is treated equally and my hope is that viewers feel they could be standing at that moment in time, as well as enjoying the brush strokes of the painting in their own right.

I have exhibited widely and my most notable commission to date was being Artist in Residence to the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment during 2011-2012, the year of the Royal Wedding between the Prince and Princess of Wales, culminating in an exhibition at the Hyde Park Barracks.

My workshop and gallery at my home in Hinton St Mary, North Dorset, is open all year round and I welcome commissions:  equine, canine and landscape.

Round Bales

I am very much looking forward to taking part in Dorset Art Weeks again this year from my studio in Hinton St Mary where I will be exhibiting more landscapes this time, alongside my equestrian paintings.  I love this event and meeting new and existing friends and collectors of my work. It is such a great event across Dorset.

Round Bales

I am delighted to be teaming up with Caroline Nicholls, renowned milliner and clothes designer, in a fantastic new collaboration – she will be exhibiting some of my paintings next week at the  Cheltenham Festival on her stand in the shopping village.  Caroline Nicholls is ‘a luxury, countryside inspired fashion brand with a touch of elegance’ and her website is www.carolinenicholls.com

I entered the Russell Cotes Museum Open Call for Artists linked with the Lucy Kemp-Welch exhibition at the Russell Cotes Gallery in Bournemouth and am delighted to say I am a shortlisted winner with the landscape painting below – Round Bales.  It is being exhibited in the Cafe at Russell Cotes along with the four other short listed winning pieces.

I have enjoyed Lucy Kemp-Welch’s work for some years. Being born 100 years before me, a time when horses in every day life were common place, it would have been natural for her to draw them, spend time around them and, therefore, have a thorough knowledge of them. I have owned and ridden horses since I was young so I also have an instinctive feel for horses, which has given me an intuitive awareness when I am drawing or painting them. You wouldn’t necessarily term Kemp-Welch as an equestrian artist as she is a natural draughtsman and she treats everything in the composition with equal importance. This is something I have always strived to do, as everything is connected. Looking at Kemp-Welch’s paintings, you are also enjoying the texture of the paint in its own right and sense you could be standing there at that point in time – this is exactly how I hope the viewer feels whilst looking at my work.

Enquire about Commissions

I feel it is an honour to do a commission for someone – that they have entrusted you to capture exactly the feel, essence and likeness of whatever they have commissioned.  I very much enjoy this process from start to finish – meeting the animal or landscape (or not if it is not possible), and making sure the customer gets exactly what they would like.
