Kathryn Amisson was born in Manitoba and by the age of six she and her family moved to the west coast of British Columbia. Possessing a natural talent since childhood she attended the Alberta Collage of Art in 1970 and it was in 1978 that she began painting full time. Spending much of her career portraying the beauty of our Canadian west coast, in the past ten years she has expanded her boundaries and added prairie landscapes working entirely in acrylic. Both her love of the west coast and her prairie roots have instilled in her a passion for wide open spaces.
From waves to clouds Kathryn skillfully captures the allure and movement found in these wondrous and mysterious elements. Using brush, palette knife, tissue paper and acrylic mediums, the resulting texture provides a unique interpretation of a constantly changing scene.
“It is the effects of light that continue to fuel my creativity. I delight in the ever-changing palette before me. The unceasing diversity of nature excites me, inspires me and will forever be my interpretive challenge.”
Kathryn devotes her full time to the accomplishment of her much loved profession. Her work has been purchased by individuals and collectors worldwide and her efforts in aiding and contributing to her chosen group of charities is well acknowledged and recognized. Kathryn and her husband, Graeme Roberts, reside in Brentwood Bay, close to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
