Though born in Vernon, Katherine Coombes has been very fortunate to have lived in several small communities throughout BC and NWT. The majority of her years have been in the North. These many moves have allowed her to appreciate the beauty of every small town and the incredible people living in them. She has lived in Predator Ridge for the past three years.
Although Katherine has painted with many mediums, her current preference is oil over acrylics. She is a self taught artist but has been tutored by professional artists Betty Kovacic and the late Grant Fuller. Living with nature has always been an important part of her life, therefore, she feels happiest when painting landscapes or subjects which evoke happy memories.
