Kathryn Scott

Kathryn is a visual artist whose studio work mainly focuses on painting in oil on canvas. She worked as an art educator in Canberra schools and colleges for over 30 years and in 1996 completed further study resulting in the award of a Masters degree in Art History and Curatorship from the Australian National University.

Mentored by Roy Churcher in his art workshops at Wamboin, she was inspired to concentrate on painting and in particular to paint from life, en plein air. Kathryn has had two solo exhibitions in Canberra, the first prompting the comment – “a vibrant show, a great first solo exhibition, showing the diversity of skills using a wide range of media … a richly evocative experience for the viewer”

Her works capture the transitory moments of light and colour in rich oil paintings. They are depictions of delicate foliage, densely coloured flowers and soft rays of light falling through the branches of trees, reminiscent of Claude Monet’s Lily Pond series, combined with depictions of a uniquely Australian landscape.

A working musician who has played music all of her life (fiddle, piano, guitar), Kathryn explores in her work the fertile links between art and music where, for example, the sound of a warbling bird, the momentary sparkle of light or the colour of changing weather are reminiscent of rippling musical notes. She has been part of group exhibitions, week-long residencies in Central Australia and has won a number of art awards. Kathryn is currently Convenor of a Portrait group at M16 ArtSpace.

Kathryn is currently exhibiting a small oil on canvas-selection of her work at Cork Street Cafe & Gallery. Find more samples of her work on display under Current Exhibitions. All work at Cork Street Cafe & Gallery is available for sale, and can be purchase directly at the Cafe.
