Vancouver-born, painter Kathy Traeger knew from the minute she discovered crayons, that she would be an artist. After 30+ years working as a graphic designer for various design studios & advertising agencies in both Canada and the USA, Traeger is now pursuing her true passion and working towards becoming a full time painter.
Traeger doesn’t lean towards traditional landscapes or subject matter. She loves to bring a hyperrealist style into her work. Inspiration is pulled from urban landscapes, old buildings, weathered signage, anything that is iconic, eclectic or rusty. There are stories in all of these forgotten treasures just waiting to be unleashed in a painting.
Traeger works primarily in acrylics, and is constantly experimenting with different textured backgrounds on wood cradled panels and canvas.
