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."

Oils

Oil is one of my favourite mediums.  It is what DaVinci used, what John William Waterhouse and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood used. There is so much history behind it – of the great deal of work and patience required to work with it.

Each of my paintings are the product of weeks or months of applying as many as 20 layers of translucent glazes to create a finished piece.
