About the Artist
Katherine is a Canadian mixed media seascape artist who resides less than an hour east of Toronto surrounded by nature and infinite inspiration. The colour palette she uses varies between hues of deep blue and teal while always aiming to evoke a sense of calm and happiness through her art.
"Being near water evokes a calming and magical sensation that seems to freeze time. The power of the ocean has an ever-changing beauty which I love to depict in my work".
The inspiration for Katherine’s work comes from her upbringing along the Pacific Coast in Lima, Peru where she would spend summers at the beach with her family. The unpredictable beauty of the sea is her main influence which helps her depict the complexity, yet tranquility of the waves.
After returning home from a trip to Australia in 2017, Katherine’s childhood memories of the sea became prominent and she felt overcome with an urge to paint. What started out as a pass time on her days off, quickly became an everyday obsession.
Katherine’s work has been featured in the Summer 22’ edition of Durham Region’s EAST Magazine while her large scale tropical painting “Aloha” was voted top 50 in Canada in 2021 by The Marketer Magazine.
Katherine’s work has been exhibited at Propeller Art Gallery, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oakville Art in the Park, Lake Scugog Studio Tour, I Deal Coffee, and more.
