About me…

Hi, my name is Katherine, I’m an Environmental Artist. I live on the border of Wales, where I take my creativity outdoors in nature.

I love creating and sharing to inspire people to venture outside with their art, to connect  with environment around them. 

The Walking Sketchbook emerged in 2017, whilst stood beneath an Aurora on the Lofoten Islands in Norway.  

I’ve worked amongst our natural world for the past  18 years  in  the Conservation sector with Woods and Trees. I am trained as a Social Forestry Practitioner and my passion is Art and the Environment  we live in. Combining creativity in the landscape brings my two passions together.

I love working collaboratively on projects, so if you have an idea,  I would love to  chat.    I am currently working on some mini-projects of my own,  such as, painting with the wind and trees, using inks.  It is so exciting, creating with the elements. 

I am looking  forward to meeting you on a creative walk sometime or seeing you through my blog or Instagram feed @thewalkingsketchbook.

Wishing you exciting Creative Adventures!

Katherine Owen🍃
