Kathy Haycock SCA AFC OSA
Originally from Ottawa, Kathy grew up surrounded by the landscape paintings of her dad Maurice Haycock, and AY Jackson of the Group of Seven. She began painting in oils in 1998 after years of tapestry weaving. For several year she painted exclusively en plein air. She continues to be driven by the experience of being there, on-site, within the wilderness landscape.
An elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists, Artists for Conservation, the Ontario Society of Artists and the Federation of Canadian Artists, Kathy has been recognised with awards in juried and solo exhibitions across Canada. She is featured in books and publications, and is represented in public, private and commercial collections worldwide.
As a dedicated plein air painter she travels extensively, seeking out and painting natural wilderness - across the Arctic from Alaska to Greenland, the southwest United States desert and mountains, and the Algonquin highlands and Ottawa Valley of Eastern Ontario, her beloved home.
Kathy is a firm supporter of wilderness preservation, donating a portion of all sales to conservation.
