Kathy is a self-taught landscape and wildlife artist who works in many mediums: oils, acrylics, watercolours, pencil crayons, ink and pastels as well as graphite. Born in the Eastern Townships, she now resides in the countryside of Ogden in southern Quebec where inspiration for her paintings surrounds her. She captures a special essence of nature that gives the viewer an insight into her unique style.
Her body of work consists of mainly landscapes and wildlife from the area of southern Quebec known as the Eastern Townships.
Currently, she is working on a themed collection of paintings representing the changing seasons and life in rural Quebec. Each work has unique challenges; to capture the sparkle of snow on a cold winter’s day or wet leaves from a spring thaw, a barn at twilight with cast shadows on the snowy landscape, or the heat of a summer’s day while harvesting a field of hay. Each painting gives insight into the quiet beauty in the region that she now calls home, Ogden.
She has exhibited at Gallery de Sherbrooke; Bibliotheque Sherbrooke; Stanstead’s Haskell Free Library and Opera House; Parc Marie-Victorin in Kingsey Falls; Lennoxville Library; Lennoxville Women’s Centre Art Exhibition; Café Folies, Ayer’s Cliff; Art M, Magog; and a solo at Gallery Yvette Rousseau, Coaticook, QC.
