I tend to gravitate toward wildlife portraiture. I love to be out in nature observing and photographing animals. I want to create pieces that evoke a reverence for nature and for the viewer to feel connected to the subject. When I’m in the field watching these animals, I feel such peace and wonder for this incredible rock we live on and the diversity of life that inhabits it. My hope is to express those feelings in my work through a minimalistic approach that focuses on the silhouette, anatomy, and lighting of my subject to capture the beauty of its movement and form. I love every part of the process from the preparation of the painting surface to the tactile feel of mixing the paint. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to practice mastering a craft that I love each day.
Kathryn Webster is an oil painter interested in figurative subjects. After graduating from the University of Tulsa, Kathryn worked in web design and app development and honed her skills in 3D modeling. After years of working digitally, she wanted to explore traditional art mediums.
“I love to spend time in nature watching and photographing wildlife. Studying the pose, movement, and anatomy of a figure and trying to capture what is beautiful to me about the subject in that moment using a traditional medium like oil paints is incredibly satisfying to me. There’s always something new to learn and to see in each painting and I can’t wait to explore the next one.”
