Steph Krawchuk was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in 1982. She began
painting in 2002 as a first year university student. She later moved to Saskatoon
and completed a BFA in 2006. Since convocating, she lives and paints in downtown
Saskatoon and is commited to a busy studio practise. Her paintings have been
exhibited in solo and group shows within the province, and many of her paintings
are in private collections across Canada.
Krawchuk paints cityscapes that are characterized by vivid, inventive colour,
bold linear elements, and reduced forms that occasionally border on abstraction.
Krawchuk is a realist who prefers to paint from life, often en-plein-air. Gathering
as much information as she can from observation, she then proceeds to strip
her subject down to its basic forms, retaining only the details that are absolutely
necessary. We are left with strikingly concise compositions that are at once
familiar and novel, instantly recognizable but rendered according to Krawchuk’s
unmistakably personal vision.
