Kathy Bradshaw is an award-winning Saskatoon-based artist who works with a range of subject matters in oil and encaustic. Since receiving her B.F.A with great distinction from the U of S in 2005, she has self-directed through workshops with local and international artists, an artist mentorship, artist residencies and solo and group exhibitions across Canada. Bradshaw has won several awards for her landscape work and portraiture and was named a “Saskatchewan Artist to Watch in 2019” for Sask Galleries. Her work is represented by galleries in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, and Saskatchewan and her paintings are part of collections throughout Canada and around the world.
Most of Bradshaw’s paintings are inspired by her travel experiences in Canada and afar with a current emphasis on the power of space in the northern landscapes and animal portraiture. Expressive mark-making, color, texture, and light all play a powerful role in Kathy’s work and at the heart od each piece is her sensitive observation, her emotional response to the subject before her and a deep passion for painting.
