Kelly Goerzen Watercolour

Kelly embraces the watercolour medium and working in an impressionist plein air tradition, and her studies in botany have uniquely informed her interpretation of natural landscapes. She enjoys teaching students of all levels and sharing her knowledge.

Kelly Goerzen was raised in Saskatoon, receiving her initial art instruction from Reta Cowley during four years at Bedford Road Collegiate and graduating from the University of Saskatchewan in 1975 with a BSc. Honours degree in Biology. Kelly began painting full time in 1981. Her work has been exhibited primarily in western Canada, and has been collected nationally and internationally. Since 2006, Kelly has expanded her artistic repertoire to include a more intense exploration of shape, colour and composition on large-format canvas, infusing her naturalist painting style with a contemporary edge.
