 About Katayoon

Go to the outer edge of your greatness ~

I began painting daily after a near-death experience many years ago and hope my work supports viewers in connecting even more with their own depth, grace, and divinity.

My paintings are held in private collections in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and have been exhibited at the Barbara Anderson Gallery in Berkeley, Swallowtail in San Francisco, a solo show at Beyond Baroque in Venice, California, and at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art as part of the Fashionistas Fight Back! group show. A series has been on exhibit at Frank + Lola here in Oakland, California for much of 2021. Mostly self-taught, I feel happy and honored to have studied drawing with Enid Braun in NYC, oil painting with Mel Prest and Yee Jan Bao at CCA, and been coached in intuitive painting by Chris Zydel also in Oakland. I adore animals (they frequently come through my paintings—especially the big cats, dogs, wolves, deer, horses, and donkeys) and donate a generous portion of all sales to animal and humanitarian causes.
