Chance encounters can be pleasant, lovely, worrying and sometimes a bit scary.

This collection of work includes encounters between humans, including the troubled icons, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. Elvis and Marilyn do everyday things, pass like ships in the night and sometimes encounter chaotic and dangerous situations. Chance encounters also occur between inanimate objects and other creatures with unpredictable results.

The human impulse to keep going in spite of the odds, can seem a folly. The idea that one can enthusiastically ‘go for it’, simply ignoring the idea of possible disaster is an enduring focus for Kat’s work.


Kat is a Toronto based representational artist featuring the natural world- dogs, birds and humans. She creates a tableau, sets the stage. She works with a theme or idea for multiple years, thoroughly enjoying the new paths that emerge through the process.

She exhibits in Toronto galleries and outdoor shows. Her work is held in private collections in North America, Europe and Asia. Her paintings and sculptures have been featured online and in print media.
