Regional NSW, on the fringes of the Outback
Kathryn is an artist as well as science/multimedia teacher living in regional NSW, on the fringe of the outback. Her work grows and develops by capturing the world around her in a sometimes harsh environment.
In the 80's, she studied marine science at UQ and worked on the Great Barrier Reef earning an income as a taxonomical artist to support her degree.
Quals: BS Zoology, GradDipEd, MEd Multimedia, MHE. I have tried a fine arts degree, but find I wish to just selfishly enjoy my journey.

About Kathryn Lewis
My work captures the essence of nature in regional NSW, playing with colour and inward emotion. I can mull around an idea for weeks and then when I paint the work unfolds as though it has a life of its own. My work is expressionistic, sometimes moving towards cubism. Other times, I like to interpret my work with inspiration from some of my favourite artists, such as William Robertson and John Olsen.
Currently, I live on a cattle property with my 2 dogs, (a BC and Lab), a farm cat, four peacocks and chickens. There is always something going on, e.g. a bull crashing though the fence eating all my roses!!
