In 1996 she returned to her native home and took a break in her artistic endeavours until 2009 . Her style could be described as contemporary abstract, while her intention is to engage the viewer with heart felt emotion and a touch of attitude . Kathryn regenerates herself by returning to nature where she sketches, photographs or does thumbnail watercolour studies. She incorporates her skills in experimentation using mixed media.
In October 2011, Kathryn became an Elected Member of the Society Of Canadian Artists through a jury process. She is a member of other artist groups in Calgary and the surrounding area. As an appointed member of the Board of Arts and Culture for the town of High River she is able to incorporate her artistic and business skills.
