Kat Cearns is an emerging artist and illustrator based in Coombs here on Vancouver Island. Her practice is ever-growing and evolving, driven by daily inspiration and a fundamental need to create. She works in a wide range of mediums including ink, watercolour, acrylic, block printing, oil, encaustic, and more. Art has always been a way for Kat to communicate with people. As a shy individual, expressing her inner self through an art practice has been a wonderful and fulfilling way to open up to new relationships and connections. Her subjects are often animals, both in natural states and settings, as well as whimsical and fantastical scenarios. Kat aims to depict and express her feelings of awe and gratitude for the minute, often overlooked moments in life that, when added up, make every day beautiful.
