Join artist Kateri Ewing for an inspirational afternoon of letting our imaginations run wild while learning watercolour and drawing techniques to intuitively reveal images from pure colour play. Suitable for all levels, even the new beginner.
Watercolourist Kateri Ewing says that her work isn’t so much about creating art or making a statement as it is an avenue to convey how thoroughly in awe she is of the natural world around her. She expresses that awe in richly detailed paintings of songbirds and treasures of the plant kingdom. Largely self-taught and committed to her continuing development as a painter, her technique evolves with each painting as she imagines ways to share the beauty and uniqueness of her winged and botanical subjects.
Kateri has lived in Western New York for more than half her life, and counts Europe, the Midwest, the Desert Southwest and Texas as previous homes. In preparation for painting these days, she regularly walks and photographs the woods, meadows and waterways in two of her favorite places: Wyoming County and her beloved Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora, a park she helped rescue from New York State’s budgetary axe a few years back.
Kateri is an artist-in-residence at the Roycroft Campus, where she teaches several classes and workshops a week. She also has three classes that have served over 17,000 students on Craftsy.com.
Grace Meibohm, owner of Meibohm Fine Arts in East Aurora, represents Kateri locally and on the Internet. Of Ewing’s work she says, "Kateri's knowledge of her subjects and her passion for them is evident in her work which is fresh, direct and appealing. We keep looking forward to what will be rendered next." You can visit kateri online at www.kateriewing.com.
