A resident of Canada’s Maritime Provinces for most of her adult life, Kathryn has combined her career as a journalist, broadcaster and communications consultant with a lifelong interest in painting.

Artist’s Statement

"In my paintings I’m striving for both visual and emotional impact. There are surface and sub-surface elements – colour, composition and texture – working together to create the image and to reveal what lies beneath, whether that’s the integral structure or the underlying feeling. I find my subjects in the natural world and the world of my imagination and use abstraction and expressionism to translate those subjects onto canvas."
