b. 1986, HK.
Kathleen Shellrude was born in Winnipeg in 1976 and graduated from the U of W in 2005. She's worked with street involved women, taught on two continents, and found art during a lengthy hospital stay in 2015 in which she was not sure she would walk again. She is now a self taught, emerging artist and uses it to heal and explore herself.
“I use art to celebrate gratitude for the ordinary things that make life extraordinary – and to create environments for myself and the viewer that are more comforting than we might find in real life...”, Kathleen states, “ And to keep sane and sober, of course.”, she adds with a wink.
