Katelyn Ledford

Katelyn Ledford’s artwork explores the impact of digital technologies on contemporary image-making, particularly portraits. In her work, Ledford aims to create a mode of painting that can slow down the viewer and encourage them to consider our image-saturated and online-obsessed reality through the lens of portraiture. Recently, she engaged in a conversation about her art-making process, the pervasive nature of social media, and her advice for aspiring artists. Ledford’s work is both thought-provoking and introspective, providing an insightful commentary on the ways in which technology is shaping our lives and the world around us. Her candid advice for emerging artists highlights the importance of staying true to one’s artistic vision, being persistent, and continually seeking out opportunities to learn and grow.
