Katherine Trunk's Illustrations have appeared in such notable publications as : NATIONAL REVIEW, THE NEW YORK SUN, AMERICA PRESS and others. My award winning portraits and abstracts convey an expressive quality. The hand painted stylized ornaments which I create of Animals and Flowers have been exhibited throughout the New York area. I am inspired by my late Grand uncle, Herman Trunk, Jr. - a pioneer in American modern art, Cubism (1920's-1930's.) My artwork conveys an expressionistic quality. I contribute to The Brenner Brief where you can find some of my writings, and featured artwork.


Greetings, friends!

I will have my painting on view  in a group display at the Hutchins Gallery at CW Post during August 2014. This display is in conjunction with the Nassau County Fire Fighters’ Operation Wounded Warrior project. The exhibit features the work of more than 60 artists and photographers with the theme: “Endless Summer- Visions of Long Island.”

Support a good cause and come out to see beautiful artwork & photography which celebrates a joyful season filled with beauty and refreshment for the soul.


Holy Week and Good Friday

Holy week and Good Friday are guideposts for me which help direct my vision throughout the year. It is through this lens that I try to view events which occur on a daily or constant basis. Thus I hope through my talents and skills to bring peace, harmony, truth and joy.

A blessed Easter to all!
