I have been fortunate to be in association with Baxter Arts Centre in Bloomfield for 3 years, teaching painting classes to adults (mainly). This summer I am excited about giving very personalized workshops in my beautiful studio in Cherry Valley.
A colourist at heart, Kato can paint in a wide variety of styles – from realistic to abstract – in acrylics, oil and mixed media. Her subject matter includes food, rural and urban landscapes, and non-representational works. For the past 3 years, Kato has taught painting at Baxter Arts Centre in Bloomfield, where she focuses on boosting confidence, offering creative solutions, and making sure that the process never gets overly serious.

“Painting for me is about problem solving, communicating, and expressing intent. The act of painting allows me to carve out a private place to nourish my soul. I appreciate technique and composition, and paint what I find beautiful.”
