Kathryn is a multidisciplinary artist based in Lekwungen Territory/Victoria, BC, whose practice explores and critiques the way humans see, experience, and relate to the natural world. Integrating her background in neuroscience, as well as earth-based practices such as hiking, gardening and farming, her work attempts to offer new perspectives on our relationships within nature. Often referencing places and species she encounters around coastal BC, her paintings utilize abstraction and collage to formulate new landscapes that reconsider the way we encounter the natural environment. Kathryn completed her BFA in Drawing and Painting at OCAD University (2021), and her work has been exhibited in Toronto and Victoria. Kathryn is represented by Sweetpea Gallery.
