Katherine Wilson Atelier
Katherine Wilson is a Vancouver-based visual artist, metalsmith and lapidarist. She has been drawing and painting for over twenty years, and in the last three years she has begun working with metal and stones to make one-of-a kind jewellery pieces.
Katherine is driven by both the pursuit of beauty and an innate curiosity for the world around her. Natural cycles, decay, sensuality, movement, and the macabre are recurring themes that consistently appear in her work. The art-making process allows her to express that which she cannot with words—the tensions, shadows, and light she feels within herself, the beauty of a particular curve, and the profound miracles that can be witnessed in Nature.
In her visual art, Katherine explores both abstract surrealism and pop surrealist illustration. In her jewellery design, Katherine employs a variety of metalsmithing and stone cutting/polishing techniques to create both organic and geometric wearable art.
