Katushka Millones (katushkamillones.org) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Brookfield, Connecticut. A native from Lima, Peru, her paintings and objects pay homage to nature. Her distinctive personal style emanates joy and peace and expresses the vibrant spirit and atmosphere of the places she loves. Her dreamlike landscapes,vast mixed media objects and paintings, and wooden boxes are brought to life in harmonious colors and compositions.
As the artist explains “I'm a story teller and my paintings of nature are a whisper of a deeper place inside the viewer. For me nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I'm fascinated by skies, vast lands and the presence of water.”
Moved by Turner's dramatic skies, the Old Masters palette, and Cornell's assemblages, her works are in constant communication with the viewer, and have them bear witness to, and be absorbed by, the scene - a scene trapped in time of sounds and breeze, of light and shade, of movement and repose going in slow motion.
Her creative process may be affected by feelings like nostalgia, and spirituality, which are symbolized through the effects of light and sky. These paintings are the result of direct observation, however they are a complex combination of natural elements and the recollection of the emotions she felt observing those scenes.
She earned a Bachelor in Urban Design and Architecture from a prestigious University in Peru -with honors.
Katusha's works have been shown throughout Connecticut and Westchester, New York. She's a member of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, the Kent Art Association, and combines her creative time with Art Instruction at her private studio.
