Color and Movement are the first qualities that impress you in the dynamic paintings of Katherine K Allen. Closer inspection reveals the subtle textural details of hand and machine stitching. The atmospheric landscapes evoked by her paintings are simultaneously meditative and dramatic containing a "mysterious quality evoking memory and atmosphere” in the words of Marci McDade, of Fiberarts Magazine.
