Kathryn Noska

Kathryn E Noska is an oil painter of representational still life in mythic landscapes using symbolic imagery and philosophic whimsy. After receiving an AFA from Montgomery County Community College she studied 17th Century Still Life painting at Chester County Art Association under Bill Ewing. Kathryn has won many awards of excellence in the local Philadelphia Suburban area. She took first prize of the National Platinum Award for Trompe l’oeil at the Fauxcademy of Decorative Finishing in Las Vegas, NV and has been accepted in numerous juried exhibitions including the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg. Kathryn has a strong passion, purpose and persistence to find and use safe art materials due to developing Multiple Chemical Sensitivity which greatly impacted and influenced her artistic journey, direction, and choice of media. Through much research and exploration, she made a momentous discovery, and now uses solvent-free painting techniques, cold-pressed walnut oil paint and eco-friendly panels. This quest has taken many artistic twists and turns, but being a painter at heart, she has come full circle, back to her roots, empowered to continue the journey.
