Kathy Dolan, SCA, MPAC, PAC, NOAA




Kathy loved to draw as a child and enjoyed the art classes she took throughout high school. Marriage, work and raising a family took her away from her art, and it wasn’t until  the late 90’s when she took a watercolour course at a local college that her passion was rekindled.  Very soon after this she entered her first juried art exhibition:  the 22nd Annual La Cloche Art Show.  Not only were one of her pieces accepted into the show, but it sold! This drove her commitment to learn by taking workshops from both local and internationally know artists. 


From florals, to landscapes to people and wildlife; she is compelled to capture a true sense of life and light in her paintings. In the search  to achieve this; she’s constantly experimenting and learning different mediums.



Kathy Dolan is an international award winning artist who has exhibited  in juried and group exhibitions in Canada and the US,  and debuted a solo show in 2014 . She has won awards for her pastels, graphite, watercolour, photography, and oil paintings. As well as being a finalist in a floral art competition in 2013, Kathy was also featured in an eight page article titled  ‘Inside The Artist’s World’ in the ‘International Artist’ magazine Dec/Jan 2016 Issue, Her achievements also include  recipient of the ‘Ivan Wheale’ award at the 38th Annual La Cloche Art Show and 2nd prize in Pastel Artists of Canada’s  20th Annual open juried exhibition.  Kathy has also had her pencil  portraits published in various art magazines.



Kathy currently holds “Master Pastellist” designation with the Pastel Artists of Canada (MPAC, PAC) and  is a signature member of The Society of Canadian Artists (SCA). She is a member Northern Ontario Art Association, the  Pencil Art Society, Sudbury Art Club and Sudbury Art Council. 



Kathy has taught numerous workshops in different mediums  and also shares her talent by volunteering to teach  weekly classes to a group where she winters in Florida.
