Contemporary Canadian landscape artist
Katherine Muir-Miller is a full-time artist who lives and works out of her studio in Ottawa. Katherine is passionate about Canadian landscape and through her travels and artistic eye captures the landscape that connect her so strongly to nature. She began studying art under Joan Brackenbury-Imrie and as a student at the Ottawa School of Art. Celebrated award winning Canadian landscape artist Gordon Harrison now mentors Katherine as she further develops her skill and artistic style. After an injury kept her from continuing her work as an emergency room nurse, Katherine chose to embrace her passion and began painting, embracing an inner connection to nature and spirituality. She held her first solo vernissage in June of 2015, entitled Evolution. Her latest collection The Old Canoe showcases landscapes rarely seen by anyone but Canadian wilderness canoeists from the Arctic Ocean of the Northwest Territories to the lakes and roaring falls of Temagami to the many regions of Québec including Saguenay, James Bay to the upper Ontario region of Temiskaming. Katherine’s artistic belief is one of continuous learning. Her passion for color in nature is a huge driving force: “Landscapes give off color to me (…) It’s fascinating how many colors one can see in a single tree”. She wants her viewer to feel the movement, mood and simplicity of her subject matter. Katherine uses her own photos and those collected from her friends and family’s travels across Canada as inspiration, using their energy to transform their adventures into her original works.
