Kathi Rudko ArtWorks

“I paint for three main reasons: to preserve a moment in time when I have been touched by beauty or mystery, to challenge myself to transform my vision into technically strong artworks, and finally to just relish the pure pleasure of moving pencil or pigment over a surface.

Having painted in watercolour for more than a decade I now paint primarily in acrylic and oil, savouring each for its unique power. Over the last few years I have been exploring old wax and oil and other mixed media techniques, exploring more playful and loose interpretations of the natural world.

My subject matter is eclectic. The coast and islands of Vancouver Island are my home and inspire my art, the vanishing of large tracts of forest and wild coastal areas are in my mind as I create my landscapes. Another subject I never stray far from is the figure, primarily women and children, and travelling continues to inspire many architectural paintings.”

Kathi Rudko is a coastal BC native, schooled in pulp mill towns and UBC after which she taught in SD72 (Campbell River) for more than 35 years. Now retired she is a practising artist, exhibiting locally and teaching painting classes and workshops from her home studio at Miracle Beach. She has volunteered as a docent and served as a board member at the Campbell River Art Gallery, is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and several Arts Councils.
