Paintings From Nature
Kathy grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In 1973 she moved to a rural setting near Eganville, and now lives on Lake Clear, located midway between Ottawa and Algonquin Park.

Though largely self-taught her interpretation is strongly influenced by her father, Arctic painter Maurice Haycock and by his close painting partner of 30 years, A. Y. Jackson. Early Arctic trips with her father introduced her to the lure of the North and inspired a sweeping and graceful movement in her work. Beginning as a spinner and weaver of tapestries in 1973, Kathy worked in stained glass and then pastels before eventually taking up oil painting in 1998. The first two shows she entered won best of show and honourable mention.

Kathy's lively landscapes celebrate the natural world. Scenes are animated with weather, temperature, wind, light and rhythmic movement. She works outside on location in all seasons, inspired by the immediate and exuberant experience of painting from within a landscape. Larger canvases are completed in her Woodland Studio-Gallery at Lake Clear, near Eganville.

Kathy has traveled to the Eastern Arctic and Greenland since 1975. She also paints in the southwest desert country of Arizona and New Mexico, but always returns home to explore and paint the wilderness wetlands, sparkling waters and wooded hills of the Algonquin region in eastern Ontario.

Kathy's work is represented in private and corporate collections from the Yukon to Newfoundland, and in the USA, Europe, Middle East, Australia and China.

Support for Conservation:
Kathy has been a supporter of numerous Canadian environmental and animal habitat protection foundations for many years.

Kathy and two painting partners, Joyce Burkholder, AFC and Linda Sorensen, AFC are co-authors of a beautiful art/conservation book to be released in 2014. "Wild Women, Painters of the Wilderness" is an art book with a message. Through their landscape paintings these three artists share their passion for the natural world and appeal to the reader to be more aware of conservation. Watch for updated information on publication date, local releases and exhibitions.

Kathy was the co-ordinator of the annual 'Mystery of the Park' art exhibition in Algonquin Park, Ontario Canada for 10 years. Local, national and international sales there support 'The Friends of Algonquin' a group that looks after nature interpretation, prints periodicals and operates the bookstore at Canada's most famous provincial park.
