Katie Gabbard

Katie Gabbard is a modern artist with a studio practice in Coldwater, Ohio. In recent years, her work has been exhibited in Miami, FL.; Findley, OH; Columbus, OH; and New York, NY. Large-scale paintings that contain vivacious colors and joyful, lighthearted subject matters are the defining characteristics of her work. When not in the studio, Gabbard applies her creativity and energy to a surprising place--the Darke, Miami, and Mercer County housing market, as a Realtor.
