Fancier Version:

Katelan Foisy is a visual artist who specializes in collage and acrylic mixed media paintings.  Katelan studied illustration at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY and started her career in the communication arts shortly after graduating in 2001.  Her fine art pieces have been displayed at The Worcester Art Museum, Ohio History Museum, Mae West Fest, MODA, Museum of Contemporary Art DC, as well as the A&D gallery in London.

Katelan's ruminative mixed media collages often evoke a gamut of emotion through the rich layers and textural combinations. Her illustration clients have included, The Grammy Awards, Out Magazine, The Progressive and many others.  Her collaged portraits and  mixed-media paintings have graced the pages of Scholastic Books and the walls of Young & Rubicam. Ensemble Studio Theater even had her work grace their stage. She was the art-director for Constellation Magazine from 2007-2010 .

In 2010 Katelan released her memoir Blood and Pudding, based on her teenage experiences with her cousin and boyfriend. She has read at the London National Poetry Society, hosted flash gigs in Oxford, and released "The Shaman" a spoken word piece with ABEARICA.  Her writing has appeared in Constellation Magazine, Filthy Gorgeous Things, the Notwork, For Books Sake, Electric Literature, and the Red Umbrella Diaries.

A natural empath and medium, Katelan created her own form of energy healing based on Native American techniques and applied them into her everyday practices as an artist, healer, and reader. She has been trained in traditional reiki and practiced both techniques as well as tarot at one of the largest Botanica’s in America before starting her own practice 5 years ago. That business eventually lead to her joining forces with Sherene Schostak to for Beneath the Half Moon.  She holds public circles with Sherene every month as well as classes and cleansing rituals.  Katelan comes from a long line of herbalists, mystics, and healers.  She is currently studying Afro-Cuban traditions under her Godfather Ochani Lele and is a confirmed child of Eleggua.  In her spare time she blogs, models, and tends to her garden.  She currently resides in NYC with her very bad cat named QPI.


Artist Statement:

As a teenager my cousin and I took road trips with no destinations.  We wound up at truck stops, coffee shops, graveyards, and the occasional prison.  During these trips I learned the art of collage, picking up whatever scraps I could find, and pasting them into my journals.

When I moved to NY I became intrigued with the Beat poets and the erotic literature of Anais Nin.  These rich scripts and gritty streets provided me with the palate and textures that would become my art. But beneath the grit there was something pure. I adored wandering the blocks, ducking into churches to get one brief glance at the art painted across ceilings and in windows.  This gave me somewhat of a virgin/whore complex.  Later Dali and Kahlo became my artists of choice, and as I integrated into the city I became addicted to the street art displayed across the buildings.

The streets continue to provide me with visual stimulation and as time progresses so does my work.  I’m interested in the layers beneath the city, the underground worlds, the pulse, and the beat.  I still take trips with no destinations, picking up pieces of memorabilia and pasting them into my art. And I’m still pretty sure somewhere along the journey there’s that pesky complex lying latent in the underlying layers.
