In her profession Katarzyna thoroughly thinks over every single daub of paint left on the painting surface. In her opinion, the perfect daub is organic and somewhat blurred. That is a reason why she tends to adopt the drybrush technique which means that she apply rather small amount of paint. With the help of the chiaroscuro technique for shape form and space. Katarzyna attempts at capturing numerous details, indistinguishable for an average spectator, while still preserving the original proportions. However, it is the form that is the most important; for the colour is subordinated to the form, not the other way round. Katarzyna immerse`s her pictures in tones derived from nature, often muted. Katarzyna always trys to seize the untamed, fleeting beauty of horses, sparkling sweat on their fur, foaming muzzle, sparky eye… Katarzyna Stefanowicz - Equine Art
In her works Katarzyna wishes to obtain a certain type of theatricality, as if lights were directed at only one actor, who is playing the main role. Everything else remains in the shade. Katarzyna operate`s with a technique most refined - oil painting. In that way, addressing the most distinguished painters of the past era while still striving for a technological perfection. Katarzyna paints thinly following the style of the Dutch painters; by putting subsequent layers of paint emphasizing the sense of space in a painting. Instead of canvas though, Katarzyna uses her beloved wood which is a natural material, more durable and also smoother on its surface what helps enormously in illustrating all the details.

Katarzyna refined her skills at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu) where she did a major in screen printing and, then, in easel oil painting. Katarzyna participated in numerous open air paintings and exhibits her works in galleries such as Ether in Warsaw, Tadeo in Bielsko-Biala and, last but not least, Jest in Torun. Most often though, Katarzyna paints to individual orders from horse owners and raisers. Katarzyna paintings can be found in many private collections across all Europe.
