About

A sense of mystery is often embedded in the works of Western Australian artist, Kathy Bierma. She creates lyrical-semi-abstract artworks, landscapes and portraits in mostly acrylics, watercolour and inks. Kathy chooses to convey her love of the Australian land and coast through intense colours, nature inspired patterns and the subtle layering of textures. She has exhibited in multiple exhibitions across Australia, facilitated arts workshops in a variety of media, and been involved in collaborative and community based art projects and murals. After years of camping and scuba diving she has a fond love of our WA coastline which features in many of her works.
