Artists In Canada Interviews Encaustic Painter Kathy Bradshaw

Reviews, Artist Reviews

This week on "Canadian Art Today with Paul Constable," we celebrate the remarkable journey of Kathy Bradshaw, a Saskatoon-based artist whose transition from a high school Phys. Ed. teacher to a renowned Canadian artist and art educator is a source of inspiration. Kathy's passion for art was ignited after completing her first painting at 40, leading her to pursue and complete her B.F.A. with Great Distinction at the University of Saskatchewan in 2005. Her commitment to enhancing her artistic practice through workshops, mentorships, and exhibitions across North America has not only garnered her numerous awards but also led her to be named “A Saskatchewan Artist to Watch” in 2019. Kathy's work, represented in galleries across Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, and included in collections worldwide, is a testament to her dedication to her craft and her ability to pursue her life’s passion daily.
