About

Kateri Ewing

Watercolor can become like a new language that you can use to express your creativity across many subjects and styles.

For watercolorist Kateri Ewing, painting is all about capturing the awe she feels for the natural world. In preparation for painting, Kateri regularly walks and photographs the woods, meadows and waterways in two of her favorite places near her home in western New York state: Wyoming County and Knox Farm State Park. Kateri's passion for painting and drawing is infused in her teaching, and sharing her techniques with students of all ages is her favorite thing about being an artist. Kateri's original watercolors are currently represented by Meibohm Fine Arts.
