I am happy to welcome a new instructor to the Playful Pencil Art Studio.
Kate Brooks-Heinimann will be coming on board this summer to deliver several of our summer camps and will be working closely with me to design fun and educational art programming for all ages this fall. Welcome Kate! ~ Jodi
Hello! My name is Kate, and I am a practicing artist from Victoria, British Columbia. I love to paint in acrylics and oils, and illustrate in watercolour and guache. Landscapes, animals, and plants fuel my inspiration to create art. I am excited to share my passion with you and help you develop as an artist at the Playful Pencil!
Kate is a painter and illustrator from Victoria, British Columbia. Her work is influenced by the nature-filled mystical landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC, and her Certificate of Visual Arts from the Vancouver Island School of Art in Victoria. Since graduation she has participated in an artist residency, exhibited in group art shows, and completed multiple artwork commissions within Canada and the United States. When not in her studio, Kate spends time sketching in nature, tending to her plant-filled house and garden, and practicing yoga.
Kate’s work can be viewed on her website at www.artworkbykbh.com.
