I purchased this as a Mother's Day gift for my mum. She was thrilled with it. I plan on purchasing a pendant for a dear friend's upcoming birthday, and one for myself. Unique and lovely work of art, and Kathy is just as lovely as her work! Great experience.

About

Creating stained-glass inspired artwork of flowers and landscapes.

“The art I create is made with the brilliant colours of childhood juxtaposed with the bold lines of adult life”. The contrast in my work explains how I balance being a creative professional while satisfying my urge to build, explore, and play.

Art was always one of the best teachers in my life, it taught me how to express my emotions, develop fine-tuned motor skills, communicate better and see things through a new perspective. Now that I’m older, I am proud to call myself a full-time artist at home in the studio.

I am a firm believer that it is possible to maintain a high quality of life while following one’s passions. To me, the starving artist stereotype is harmful because it dissuades people from being creators. The world can never have enough people who inject inspiration into the hearts of our communities. Whether it’s serious or a bit silly, art should be treated with the same respect as any other profession: it requires time, practice, skill, patience and effort — just like anything else. When people see my paintings and smile for the first time, it’s one of the most rewarding feelings on the planet, that transcends money or success.

My most recent work is a reflection on the process of creation. For me, each twirl of the paintbrush is a way to come back to the present moment, a way to slow down and feel each movement with greater intensity. While the finished product will always be only steps away, it is important to embrace each moment.

    Art has always been a part of my life. I grew up drawing and painting when I was a child, then headed off to the Alberta College of Art and Design as a teen. In 2001, I graduated with a Bachelor of Design with a focus on illustration.
