About the Artist

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same moment”

-Thomas Merton

Katie Lois Leahul 

Katie Leahul is a self-taught artist who resides in Calgary, Alberta with her husband and two sons.

Katie’s earliest work draws on inspiration from Picasso, Braque, and the Cubist movement.  She has continued to evolve her practice over the last two decades, and her unique geometric style has been described by others as a cubism revival. 

Working primarily in acrylic on canvas, her process involves extensive layering of colour and lines. Her subject matter often evokes a feeling of nostalgia from choice of subject matter to colour palate. Her work encourages the question, what are the small moments that define us? and expresses the emotions we feel behind these nostalgic references. 

Katie’s passion for artistry, and love of colour and design inspires her to create spirited paintings with an underlying esoteric structure.
