Katherine Roth is a self-taught artist from Amherstburg, Ontario who has become known for her dreamy abstract acrylic landscapes. She often paints her impression of an early sunrise, the last light of a sunset, drifting clouds or scenes from the beaches of Pelee Island and beyond.
Collectors of her work often comment that her atmospheric paintings evoke feelings of peace and tranquility. A calming, comforting effect occurs in any interior space where her work is displayed. Her paintings are easy to get lost in while viewing them, much like watching colourful clouds drift by.
Her most recent work embraces an ancient medium called “encaustic”…which is the art of painting with hot beeswax, oil pigments and Damar resin. In addition to painting on birch board, Katherine applies her new medium to live edge wood pieces. Exciting things happen when she opens her mind and intuition to the endless possibilities that encaustic painting can reveal.
