my name is Katherine Lohse and I was born and raised in Shepparton,
Victoria. I have been a wildlife carer for two years, and have
been painting regularly since 2002.
I have always enjoyed art, and took it further by completing a
Diploma of Visual Arts at TAFE in 1998-1999, then completing my
Diploma of Graphic Design at TAFE in 2000-2001.
In 2002 I attended my first art workshop with local artist Glenda
Cornell. I enjoyed it so much I began attending her Tuesday art
classes. It was here I found my love for pastels. I found it easier
to use, manipulate and create texture.
In 2003 I began exhibiting at local Rotary Art Shows. I have sold
several artworks at these various art shows. My first joint exhibition
was in 2004, at the Southern Riverina Gallery at Finley.
The inspiration for my artwork is nature, with its colours, shapes
and textures. Whether it is the bright colours and shapes of flowers,
or the textures in landscapes. My love of wildlife has become
my main inspiration. As a wildlife carer I am able to look after
our amazing wildlife. Seeing their colours, textures and personality,
encourages me to reproduce them in my artwork.
do commissions as well as pet portraiture. If you would like more
information or would like to request a commission, please contact
