Magic is at the heart of Katina Desmond's art.

Her work reveals an inherent affinity for complex urban and natural environments while exploring transcendent themes of time, place and memory.
Desmond utilizes a variety of techniques and media including photography, painting, collage and photomontage. She combines unique design with strong composition, and the viewer can sense the influence that surrealists and abstract artists such as Man Ray, Max Ernst and Kandinsky have had on her work. Desmond shares their uncanny ability to enliven the inanimate and to create a feeling of enchantment in the ordinary.
