A long time resident of the small town of Barriere, B.C., Katherine Semrick has won several awards at local competitions and her works adorn the walls of private collectors throughout the North Thompson Valley, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and Washington State.
Working with an airbrush and acrylic paint, her attention to detail and passion for realism are quickly gaining recognition throughout the Pacific Northwest for the magnificent “true life” wildlife paintings.
Primarily self-taught, Katherine’s skill as a visual artist was immediately evident when she first put brush to canvas in 1998.
Always ready to give back to the community, Katherine’s paintings have been the feature of many charity fundraisers in the North Thompson Valley and Vancouver Island.
Katherine had several paintings entered in the recent Kamloops Arts Council Juried show, and has been asked by the Kamloops Arts Council to come back for a show of her own later this year.
