Magic is at the heart of Katina Desmond's art. Her imagery holds mystery that reveals metaphoric dimension beyond the surface. Desmond’s work contains an inherent affinity for both 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. Her unique eye for design combines with strong compositional skills, 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 out of the ordinary.
