Kelly Goerzen

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. Embracing the watercolour medium and working in an impressionist plein air tradition, Kelly began painting full time in 1981. Her studies in botany have uniquely informed Kelly’s interpretation of natural landscapes. 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.
