Her one-of-kind award-winning fine art paintings and restorations have been featured in a multitude of international exhibitions and have received prestigious awards from Eastman Kodak Company, Epcot Center, Fuji Photo Film Corporation, American Kennel Club, Golden Retriever Club of America, Kraft Dreams on Ice, and received awards and online recognition from Manhattan Arts International and Artsy Shark.  Her paintings and restorations are in corporate and private collections worldwide.

I'm Accepting Commissions!
Kathryn gladly accepts commissions that turn loved ones, fantasies, or personal stories into a Masterpiece Painting in oil on canvas or painted digitally on the computer and delivered as a chalk/watercolour print. 
A preliminary meeting is scheduled with the client (in-person, phone, or Internet) to discuss the objective of the painting and the story behind it where Kathryn will guide the client to develop the composition and storyline for the painting.
All paintings are created using photographs supplied, or taken by the artist. 
When the finished layout (sketch) is created Kathryn will email it to the client.   When written approval and a 50% non-refundable deposit is received Kathryn will begin to paint.  Paintings are usually delivered in four to six weeks.
Upon completion, a small image of the painting will be emailed for final approval and to discuss any minor changes necessary.  Upon receipt of the balance owing, the painting will be shipped. 
Framing is the responsibility of the client.
