Katie Brinkley - Painter

Born and raised in Clifton, Texas, a small community with big art influence, Katie has been impacted by art all her life and naturally felt drawn to creative outlets. Her first profession was in orthotics and prosthetics, where she had a creative outlet in designing and fabricating braces and prosthetic limbs for people. This profession has also led her to an opportunity to do medical mission work where she has served as a board member and volunteer prosthetist/orthotist with Prosthetic Promises In His Name, a non-profit focused in providing prosthetic services in Zambia, Africa. She took on the Executive Director role for the PPIHN board in 2020 and also continues to serve as a volunteer prosthetist/orthotist and team leader for trips to Zambia.


Though working in the medical profession, she maintained a focus in continuing to develop her art through the years. In 2021, she transitioned to a full-time art career and opened Vantage Point Art Gallery in downtown Gainesville, Texas with a vision to provide local artists like herself a space to display their art and create a place of community for creatives. She has a focus in mural painting, both indoor and outdoor, which is her outlet to work on a large scale. On a small scale, she works mostly in acrylic and mixed media. 


In January 2024, Katie and her husband moved to Maryland in search of cooler weather and a new adventure.
