Kathleen Black
Kathleen is both prolific and diverse in her artistic expression.  Highly experimental in subject and medium, she merges acrylics, oils, encaustic, fabric, glass jewelry and sculpture with singular boldness.  She is noted for her vivid acrylics and recurring images of prairies and boreal forest.  Her glasswork is a union of vessel and sculpture.  She forms the fiery colours of stained glass into balanced works both supple and solid.  Her work is emotional, vulnerable and direct.

Kathleen is captivated by concepts of time and mortality, the journey between the two, and the artistic mediums that best capture a representation of this dynamic.  The culmination of her art and philosophy are no accident. 

Kathleen holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba.  She has been featured in group and solo exhibitions across Canada.  For the past several years she has worked closely with cancer patients in "Art Next to the Big Blue Chair" and "Artists in Healthcare" programs.
