KATIE RÉ SCHEIDT
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 equities sales-trader, and began her professional art career while living in Roxbury, CT, where she has lived for the past nine 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. Among layered fields of color and lush 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 that almost feels out of a ballet. Scheidt's work can be found in private collections in Europe and throughout the United States. Her work currently hangs at Relais & Chateaux hotels in New England like The Mayflower Grace Hotel & Spa in Washington, CT.
