"Sober" by Katy McManus, displayed at Luna Light, Art All Night, Artform Gallery & Tattoo -sold

"Sober was an interesting painting that I believe lead me to CoSM and awakened my art journey. This was my first painting portrait and a great lesson in form and contrast. I look at this painting now 2 years old and I still find new things that I love about it. It is safely at home with its owner who I believe this painting called to. I couldn't be more pleased!"

30x40 Acrylic & Oil on Canvas #1 of 4 in the "Scientific Saints" series -price available upon request
"The Hive" by Katy McManus, on display now at VOMA -price available upon request

"This is the first installment in the 4 part 'Scientific Saints' series featuring Tesla, Einstein, Hawking, and Curie. Einstein said, 'remove the bee from the Earth and at the same stroke you remove at least 100,000 plants which will not survive.' I came across this quote on the cusp of 6 species of bees being added to the endangered species list. There are a few links to bees, most notably was Einsteins' paper on the Brownian motion, where he concluded that pollen observed under a microscope was  being moved by individual water molecules. The Brownian motion served as convincing evidence that atoms and molecules EVEN EXIST! 10% of the sale of this painting is earmarked for The Pollinator Partnership."

"Beyond the Event Horizon" by Katy McManus, on display now at VOMA -price available upon request

"This 30x40 painting is the second installment in the 4 part 'Scientific Saints' series featuring Tesla, Einstein, Hawking, and Curie. Because of  Stephen Hawking and his Black Hole Paradox I named this painting from the stand point that you can pass through the event horizon to see a white hole on the other side. I call it wishful thinking."

"Rock-to-pus" by Katy McManus, displayed at Artform Gallery & Tattoo, Mistletoe Show, VOMA -price available upon request

"Rock-to-pus was named because it looks like speakers and who wouldn't love a musical octopus? This was a study I did in light sources. Totally one of my favorite pieces to take to shows."

"Medusa's Return" by Katy McManus, displayed at Gem & Jam, Great North, Disc Jam & Artform Gallery & Tattoo -price available upon request

"Ever since my father got me subscriptions to National Geographic and Scientific American I have had an interest in our galaxy. 'Medusa's Return' or as I lovingly call her 'Ceto' is the first installment in the Gods/Goddess series "Seeds of Olympus" that will contain both mythological figures and their constellations or orbital paths. For example: the crown on Cetos' head is actually the orbital map of four of our planets and the path of the Star "Ceto." Discovered in 2003 by Mike Brown and Chad Trujillo.

The Story behind the painting: I wanted to give Medusa a proper ending to her tale. She got a bum deal if you ask me. Ceto is the Mother to all mythological monsters most notably  the gorgons. Medusa was 1 of triplets, Ceto's only normal daughter and mortal, her sisters where born immortal Gorgons or snake women. Medusa was so beautiful that  Athena took her in as a lady in waiting. When Poseidon assaulted her in Athena's temple she blamed Medusa for not protecting her virtue and transformed her into a gorgon as punishment and then tasked Perseus with her murder just to wear Medusas' head as a weapon and trophy mounted on her shield fore-evermore. In this painting we see the scene of Ceto, an awaken Goddess and Mother after centuries of slumber, waiting for her beautiful daughter to pass by her one last time on her way the see Hades. It's bittersweet because she can't turn around for fear that her daughter will turn her to stone, she has to have a Mother's faith that her child is now free. We as the viewers can take comfort in the fact that a Mother's faith and love is sound."

"Duplexity" by Katy McManus, displayed at RSVP Recording Studio, Great North & Artform Gallery & Tattoo -sold

"I named this Duplexity instead of duality because I wanted to show the male/female pairing to be complimentary to one another as opposed to conflicting. This painting was transformed several times because the situation I was painting was ever changing just like life."

"Double Down" by Katy McManus, displayed at Mistlet Show, VOMA, Artform Gallery & Tattoo -NFS

"Double Down is a mixed media painting I did of an abstract heart. These painting are PERFECT for kids because they are virtually indestructible. They love the textures and it gives them muscle memory and an interest in art. One of my biggest passions is getting children interested in art. Without you you can't be creative, what kind of life is that?"

"5 Fates" by Katy McManus -NFS

"An oldie but a goodie, '5 Fates' was inspired by an old television show called 'Hermans' Head.' Which got me to thinking about what my needs and wants were at the time and the internal struggles. From left to right are our wants and needs, you feed one just to starve another. Logic, curiosity, child-like faith, followed by hunger and will. It's a bit dark but it helped to get this out at the time. Art is amazingly healing like that."

9, 8x10 Jigsaw Paintings, Acrylic on Canvas -sold
"MOMdalas" by Katy McManus -sold

"This is a JigSaw Puzzle Painting, the idea is to make a painting that you can spread out among many people who are now united through one piece of art made with love. Plus, each piece is beautiful on it's own but when the puzzle is built it is so much more impressive. This one was specifically designed for Mom's! I gifted these to people that protect and love me like my Mother would. I still have a few and intend to pass them out throughout my life."

"The Gathering" by Katy McManus, displayed at Great North, Disc Jam, Artform Gallery & Tattoo -sold

"The Gathering is a meeting of all my favorite characters real and fictional coming together in the middle of the night to decide the fate of humanity. Do they intervene and save us one last time or just quietly wait for us to destroy each other and let the land heal. These are Earth bound, enlightened spirits...so, humanity isn't looking so great.

Fun Fact: My brother liked this so much that I gave it to him for his Birthday...but, not before I hid an image of Elmo in this painting as a joke! Can you find him?"

"Heaven" by Katy McManus, displayed at Artform Gallery & Tattoo -NFS

" A mixed media painting like this is real durable and great for touching without damaging the painting. Growing up in Pittsburgh around all of the beautiful artwork collected by the Carnegie family is a blessing and a curse because some of those pieces just begged to be touched. As a child I found it so frustrating so now I make art kids can touch! 'Heaven' is a representation of the underwater dreams I have. These are the creatures floating around me in this series of reoccurring dreams I've had since I was a child."

"Interdimensional Purview" by Katy McManus, displayed at VOMA, Artform Gallery & Tattoo -sold

"This was inspired by Adam Psybe, when I saw him at Gem and Jam 2015, it just amazed me. So, I decided to paint a fractalized view of an Apple tree throughout the 4 seasons. My favorite is Fall where you can see the apples floating down the river. This is another one that my brother owns and sits happily in his office in Denver. I am so flattered to have my art on display at such an amazing company!"

"Grilled Cheese Funk" painted exclusively for G-Nome Project at Club Cafe by Katy McManus -price available upon request

"This was painted live when G-Nome Project came to Pittsburgh. I met these guys at the Great North festival and we just clicked. I made this mixed media painting with gold paint so the cheese would look real. So many people say they want to eat this, who can blame them, it looks soooooo cheesy!"

"This was a huge commissioned painting with all the zodiac constellations. A friend had this made for his sister as a house warming gift. This was a really fun painting to work on. I can't believe how it changes throughout the day due to the drab olive (actual paint color name) paint."

"Sweet Agony" by Katy McManus, displayed at Art All Night, Luna Light, Mistletoe Show, Great North, Disc Jam,VOMA, Artform Gallery & Tattoo -price available upon request

"There is a long and sorted story behind this mixed media painting. Perhaps someday I will explain it."

-Katy McManus


"This organite and acrylic collaboration that I made with the artist Sal-Utation was amazing. This piece is an amplifier for any stone alter. The precious stones paired with the mandalas and precious metal based paints make this a wholly unique and truly one of a kind painting. Whoever buys this will have one of the grandest creations I have ever made. My hope is that it goes to the right home."
