Katherine MacNeill is a paper collage artist living in the South Okanagan, using recycled paper from old calendars, used magazines and donated books to create wilderness landscapes of the Northwest of the continent. Born in northern Vancouver Island and proud of her First Nations heritage, she hopes to remind viewers that mankind is part of the lands and part of the waters, and crucial in sustaining our natural environment.
Since retirement and discovering collage-making in 2015, she has won a Juror’s Award at SSNAP and been a featured artist on PBS Spokane’s “Northwest Profiles”.
I derive so much energy and joy from our natural chaotic and effusive environment and want future generations to have that same resource. I also love building my collages!
