Artist Statement

Kathryn combines her passions for art and community by facilitating in-person art classes and programs provincially, and virtually on a national scale. She has over nine years of experience working within the Canadian art sector as an artist, instructor, organizer and facilitator. In Kathryn’s professional art practice, she explores environmental, cultural and social practices that connect communities across disciplines. She utilizes mixed media techniques in her painting, drawing, and sculptural practices that often explore the human condition as it exists within the Anthropocene. Kathryn believes that art is an essential human practice that builds meaningful connections across cultures and communities.
