If you've ever been to Las Vegas, there's a good chance you've seen the amazing artwork of Kat Tatz on murals found at the Mandalay Bay and The Linq. Kat Tatz' art has a unique and memorable look featuring lighthearted and whimsical themes which always tells a story and captivates audiences.
Kat follows a generation of artists starting with her father and grandfather who were painters and sculptors. One of Kat's first memories as a child was her father teaching her how to draw a portrait at the kitchen table. From that moment on, Kat was hooked on art and shunned dolls in favour of crayons and paints.
Kat was influenced by entertainers such as Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Wayne Newton and the Las Vegas showgirls with all their feathers and bling. "I never have to worry about running out of ideas or concepts to paint." Kat rarely plans out a painting, stating, "I just allow the painting itself to inspire me as I create it. I try not to focus on making the painting what I initially want it to be, but rather allow the painting to flow naturally resulting in what the painting is supposed to be."
Kat works in various mediums including acrylic, oils, latex and clay. Kat followed her path as a self-educated artist by attending workshops featuring some of the greatest master artists and was especially enlightened by the teachings she received from the great Daniel E. Greene. Kat Tatz currently resides in Las Vegas, NV and her artwork can be found in numerous galleries throughout the world including California, Colorado, Nevada and Louisiana and Canada.
