Art & Brunch Donor Spotlight: Kathy Lycka

 Artist Bio
 Kathy Lycka grew up drawing and painting. She headed off to the Alberta College of Art and Design as a teen, and graduated with a degree in Visual Communications with a focus on Illustration in 2001.

Over the next few years she worked at various national and international corporations and created over 100 pieces of commercial/editorial illustrations. She also relocated temporarily to London, England for a change of pace and a promising job as a graphic designer with HSBC Investments (UK).

During her time across the pond; the overwhelming amount of gorgeous architecture, museums filled to the brim with fine art, and cultural diversity brought her unimaginable happiness. Her passion for art hit a restart button and she devoted countless evenings to painting pictures on the kitchen table in a tiny one-bedroom flat for the year she was abroad.

However, it wasn’t until a car accident in 2008 left her with serious neck and back injuries that she started painting on a regular basis again as part of her rehabilitation. This experience forced her to slow down and re-evaluate her life purpose. She now works full-time as an artist out of her home-based studio in Calgary, Alberta.

Aside from painting and drawing whimsical creatures, Kathy also teaches art classes in her studio.

Kathy donated some whimsical animal art for our event. Thanks Kathy!
