Artist Bio
Katie Pumphrey is an American contemporary artist. Her paintings, sculptures, and installations use abstraction and imagery to explore the tensions and the connectedness between human instincts and play. Her works have been exhibited in galleries across the United States, including solo exhibitions in Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Key West. In 2009, she graduated from the Maryland Institute College of art with a BFA in Painting. She has attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Studios of Key West, Gallery Four, and was a Resident Artist at the Creative Alliance (2011-14).

Pumphrey is also a marathon open water swimmer. Notable swims include the English Channel (2015, 2022), around the island of Manhattan (2017), and the Catalina Channel (2018). These three swims make up the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming. Pumphrey was the 194th person (73rd woman) in the world to achieve that honor. Her work is deeply connected to swimming, and her experiences in the water greatly influence and drive her work. Pumphrey lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
