Born in the Pacific Northwest, Kathryn Gabinet-Kroo made her way east and settled in Montreal. She spent her childhood revelling in nature, the vast array of flowers and trees, the coastline and mountains of Oregon. Kathryn misses it still and so tries to capture the essence of natural surroundings in her work.
A photographer turned painter, Kathryn has naturally sought to create realistic images and the techniques that satisfy this need. Those that serve her best are watercolours on paper or claybord and oil and oil pastels on canvas or wood panel.
Kathryn Gabinet-Kroo paints in both oil and watercolour, and her long-running series include still lifes, portraits, and images of the natural world found in gardens and ponds. Birds are the focus of her most recent paintings. You can purchase original paintings by contacting Kathryn using the contact form. In addition, fine art prints of her works can be ordered at:
