Kathy Guthrie • Visual Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

My intuitive multi-media work is informed by life experiences and the intrigue of connections from one generation to the next. A handwritten note, an article of clothing or even part of a conversation may spark a faded memory through which I translate into intimate works of art. I combine delicate lines and simplified shapes with attention to detail and unified with strong design elements. Assembling materials to build up layers is the method I use. I am interested in putting together pieces and juxtaposing techniques to create fresh and engaging work.

 

BIO

I was born the eldest of eight children in North Bay ON, where I remember taking my first art lessons in still life drawing and oil pastels. As a young woman, I studied graphic design at Sheridan College Institute of Technology, Oakville ON. I attended the Vancouver Island School of Art and graduated with a Certificate of Visual Arts in 2009.

 

Experiencing visual art – at exhibits, galleries and studios – is vital to human development. I enjoy involving the public through the workshops and classes that I teach and open studio days. I am also committed to connecting with other artists in the community through art demonstrations, exhibits and studio tours.

 

I am married with two children and live in Victoria, BC.
