For the last 23 years, painting impressionist and naive art has been the real joy in my life after my family. When I wake up each morning I can’t wait to start on a new painting or finish one on the go. Painting brings me joy not only because I truly love to paint, but also because owners of my artwork all seem to love the blend of colours and the feeling of youthful freedom they get from my style of art. I truly feel blessed to have found a talent with which I can both happily fill my time and delight my customers.
So enjoy browsing through my online gallery and I hope that one catches your interest. My original artwork is currently on sale through retailers found in the ‘where to buy’ section. Prints of some of my best impressionist artworks are available at Koyman Galleries, please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
One of Katerina’s paintings ” Honouring my Father”, was painted on October 22, 2014 after the attack in Ottawa at the War Memorial where Nathan Cirillo, the corporal standing guard that fateful day, was shot dead.
Out of her heart’s urging this painting was created, and it was featured on the front page of The Ottawa Citizen newspaper on November 1st, 2014. The article went on to explain the meaning of the painting, and announced that with Koyman Galleries, and with the Ottawa mayor’s support, limited editions are being sold and raising funds for Nathans son Marcus Cirillo’s trust fund.

The original painting hangs in the mayors boardroom and an embellished print hangs in Ottawas city hall for all to view. –
