Kathryn Newell has lived in Kelowna since 1989. Newell paints in acrylic, mixed media and watercolour. She enjoys watercolor due to the spontaneous nature of the medium and the transparency of colour that can be achieved. Most of her inspiration comes from nature and the beautiful landscape of the OkanaganValley, the vineyards, the flowers, the colors of fall, and our beautiful lake and mountains. Newell has taught watercolour for the Kelowna Art Gallery for the past several years. Upon request, she gives workshops and demonstrations at colleges, schools and groups.
Her work is held in private and corporate collections throughout Canada, Britain, Europe, the U.S.A., Japan and South Africa.
