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 connects 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.
Katherine’s artistic belief is one of continuous learning. Her passion for colour in nature is a huge driving force: “It’s fascinating how many colours 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.
