Considering the real versus the abstract
in the natural world; the transitory against the ‘real’.

Katherine hopes that viewers experience the work as playful and humorous but also dark - not gloomy- images that conjure up a worrying undertone or back story.

Most recently she's been working on a painting series about the common crow and the more mysterious raven in different scenarios – on the ground, in singles and in groups, and in flight in great numbers. She is investigating the relationship between these two birds- through the eyes, colouring, posturing and setting - trying to convey a sense of a standoff, a tense conversation, a moody narrative.

Born and raised in Toronto, she trained as a sculptor and started painting about a decade ago. She continues to make objects when the idea requires it, using a variety of materials ranging from plaster, wax, plastic and wood and found objects. Her work has been shown at various community galleries and art events in Toronto and environs.
