The Portfolio of
Ashley Katryna

Ashley Katryna works in a range of media: drawing, painting, print, and costume.  

She holds her HBA from the University of Toronto with a focus on medieval, renaissance, baroque and modern art and architecture and her Advanced Diploma from Sheridan College specializing in painting and drawing.

Artist Statement:

"I set out to create dreamlike images inspired by folklore and mythology. Each painting expresses fears that remain unspoken in life – the fear of wolves around the corner, of loss, or of falling into shadow."

 Festivals are a passion of mine; I have been a knife-throwing, face-painting wench, lady of the court, queen, mistress, archer, pirate and dancer.  I love everything to do with renaissance, medieval and fantasy fairs, especially applying my specialist in medieval culture when creating costumes based on extensive historical research.  I also love applying my knowledge of art history when creating medieval-inspired costumes that are more fantasy-based than grounded in the past.
