Biography

Katushka Millones is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Brookfield CT, United States. A native from Lima, Peru, her distinctive personal style emanates joy, peace, and expresses the vibrant atmosphere and spirit of the places and moments she loves.

Her dreamlike landscapes, mixed media objects, and paintings, are brought to life in compositions with harmonious colors, often drawn from themes of nature, memory, time, feelings of tension and harmony, and the female experience.

“I'm a storyteller and my paintings of nature provoke, connect, and communicate with the viewer about my inner world, intuitive and personal, reflecting my life as a maker, a woman, a mother, and an inhabitant of our planet Earth. 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, Cornell's assemblages, and the Old Masters palette, Katushka’s works remain in constant communication with the viewer, who becomes part of a scene trapped in time, of light and shade, of movement and stillness, of sounds and feelings.

Her creative process may be influenced by feelings of joy, peace, nostalgia, and solace, and by deep spirituality, which may be represented by the use of light and shadows, a certain palette or textures. Her paintings are a mix of direct observation, recollection of emotions, and her own imagination, impregnated with different mediums and techniques.

Besides being a Fine Artist for more than 20 years, Katushka holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from a prestigious University in Peru, where she graduated with honors.

Katushka’s works have been exhibited and purchased in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Alabama, Montreal Canada, and other locations, as she continues to expand her artistic horizons beyond the United States, while combining her creative time with Art instruction at her private studio in Connecticut.
