Katherine Polack


Artist Statement

My passion for the sea is the driving force behind my artwork. I play with a mix of acrylics and resin to capture the fluidity and power of the ocean.

About the Artist 

Katherine is a Canadian mixed media seascape artist who resides in Orono surrounded by nature and infinite inspiration. The colour palette she uses varies between hues of deep blue and teal while always aiming to evoke a sense of calm and happiness through her art.

The inspiration for Katherine’s work comes from her upbringing along the Pacific Coast in Peru where she and her family would spend endless summers at the beach.

The unpredictable beauty of the sea is her main influence which helps her depict both the power and tranquility of the waves.

Katherine has spent the last two years researching the connection that we as humans have with water whether we are submerged in it or simply near it.

If not behind her easel, you will find Katherine in her wood shop creating ocean-inspired home decor made with resin and live edge wood.

Katherine’s work has been exhibited at Propeller Art Gallery, I Deal Coffee, Oronofest, and several Durham Region makers’ markets. Katherine plans to exhibit at several outdoor art shows this summer 2022!
