Catarina Ykens II or Catharina Ykens (born 1659) was a Flemish still life painter.

She was born in Antwerp into a family of painters as the daughter of Johannes Ykens and his second wife Barbara Brekevelt. She was the sister of Peter Ykens.[1] She apprenticed under her father and joined the Antwerp Guild in 1688.[2] She became a Beguine and composed oil paintings.[3] Her works often combined religious scenes with garlands of flowers.[4]
