Katrin is a painter/printmaker who is strongly drawn to the abstract and the power it has to provoke our thoughts and push the limits of our imagination. She works intuitively in the present – learning from the simple act of making. Her artwork reflects her experiences and her emotions. She captures the essence of these moments through a symphony of the mind, the hands and the eyes. Her visual vocabulary is primarily organic and geometric forms punctuated by random mark making. Chance and accident are embraced and enjoyed.
For Katrin, fine art printmaking is the ultimate adventure – the smell and consistency of the ink, combined with line and form, the feel of the paper and the pressure of the press. Layers and textures arise in unrepeatable and complex prints. It is at once simple and yet often quite challenging. All these variables form a kind of magic where each time feels like the first time all over again.
Her artwork is held in private collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.
