Kathy was born in Kimberly B.C. and has lived in a variety of places before finally settling in Victoria. She spent much of her childhood exploring the pristine forests, marshes and lakes near Prince George and the interior of B.C. It was her naturalist father that instilled a deep love and appreciation of birds and nature.
"My artwork reveals my passion for anything vintage and seeing beauty in “old” as well as delighting in the fine detail and artistry in nature. I am drawn to the rich colour and delicate markings that occur through time on paper and ephemera and often use these treasured pieces as the foundations of my paintings."
