Meet Kathryn Gorectke, a local Regina artist who in her spare time is also a Physical Therapist, mom and wife. Kathryn has had a lifelong love for art but most recently dove into the world of acrylics approximately 5 years ago. She is for the most part self- taught but was inspired and encouraged along the way by many great art teachers through the years. What started with one painting for a church art show has turned into an exciting few years of several local art shows in Prince Albert and Regina and now Saskatoon. She has paintings across the Prairies and as far as Vancouver Island, Baltimore, Seattle, Yellowknife, Toronto, Bolivia and Australia.
Kathryn is inspired by creation around her, and in particular the living skies of the prairies and trees. Kathryn loves to look at landscapes, while in nature or from a photograph and visualize the transformation into a painting. There are so many beautiful pieces of creation just waiting to be painted! There are many painters that have provided inspiration for her journey including the Impressionists, the Group of Seven, Emily Carr and she is spurred on by a community of creative friends and fellow artists. It is an honor to embark on this artistic journey.
“Texturized; caricatures of nature; captures the essence” ~ Evonne Garnett
“While each painting is but a small vignette, the broad strokes of color , and the open space in Kathryn’s work speaks to the viewer’s soul in much the much the same way our western prairies captivate so many who live there” ~ Jason Bergen
“Bold unique lines, shapes of an impressionistic nature, exceptional colors-memories of Van Gogh, with hints of Carr, Lismer and Thompson, but a style that is all Gorectke. ~ Bruce Allan
