The artistic ability of Kathryn Amisson became apparent at a very young age. There was never a question as to the career she planned to pursue.
Painting full time since 1978, Kathryn has covered a range of subjects and used a variety of mediums. Her love of the West Coast continues to give her inspiration. Working in pastel on paper or oil on canvas she offers those who enjoy the beauty of our magnificent shores a taste of its unique character.
Her more recent work in acrylics has opened up a novel and challenging approach to her interpretation of familiar settings. Kathryn’s joy of the calm and the fury of our ocean is characteristically echoed in this scintillatingly new artistic direction.
Through the well-defined seasons of our year, Kathryn spends much of her leisure time in the environment she so fondly treasures. A most frequented and favourite destination is the Pacific Sands Beach Resort near Tofino where her passion for painting the scenes of our West Coast was first awakened.
Kathryn is proud to be one of the ‘Artists in Residence’ at the now well known event, “Painters At Painters'” held annually at Campbell River, B.C. Invited since its inception in 1994, she has participated every year along with such renown artists as Ted Harrison, Fenwick Lansdowne, Robert Genn and Alan Wylie to name just a few.
Kathryn devotes herself full time to the accomplishment of her much loved profession. Her work has been purchased by individuals and collectors world wide 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, British Columbia.
