  • Cathy Kluthe

    Short BiographyI’m originally from Alberta, moved to Vancouver, then most recently moved to Parksville. My influences have ranged from the simplistic Japanese style, the Renaissance, journeys from around the world. I am also deeply inspired by my family’s vintage photo album and love the vintage black and white outdoor images of people and their animals on the farm. Nature also has a big influence on me and I am forever drawing, trees, beaches, and birds as part of my practice. After exploring many different styles of art I now know that my strength is my drawing and my painting skills and I see my acrylic painting as flat graphic rather than expressive/impressionistic. My recent influence is blending flat semi-realistic/graphic imagery with abstract backgrounds. I am also exploring textures from natural objects combined with acrylic paint; mixed mediums that include charcoal, chalk pastels, and collage.
