"@joshbkelley and I are having a glass of wine and talking about my art work," she explained.

Speaking about her worries, she added: "He has pushed the hell out of me to post some of my work. I've been too afraid to share it cause I'm just an amateur artist with passion and no real schooling...but he challenged me to face my fear and share.

"So...here's a watercolor portrait of Adalaide that I added alcohol ink flowers to. So there @joshbkelley challenge accepted! #facingmyfears"

Fans were left in disbelief over Katherine's incredible artistic talent, with the post receiving over 53,000 likes.

Her husband was among the Suits star's many admirers, as he said: "My love you are a crazy talented artist and sometimes maybe too humble - let the world feel that passion babe."

Finding some humour in the situation, Katherine wrote: "Well…I am now bionic!! Two titanium disk now inhabit my neck and I can probably stand on my head for like hours…I'm not gonna try it just yet but give me a few months and I'll blow your mind!!"

She went on to praise the doctors and other staff that looked after her during her surgery and recovery and for the "tremendous talent and expertise" they displayed in their care.

She added: "Heading into surgery and hospital stays is always a bit scary and you guys could not have made me feel more comfortable or taken care of! Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Many fans passed on their well wishes for the actress, and one said: "So glad you are feeling better already. You even make a neck brace look glam my friend. I love your doctors and care team so much! Rest up!"

"Speedy recovery Katherine," posted another fan, alongside a flexing arm emoji.
