Women’s Art Association of Canada presents Katrina Starke Kuras, the recipient of Sandra Henderson OCAD Scholarship.

Artist Statement

Through collage, photography, photoshop and oil paint, I explore the complex world of beauty standards, body image issues, and my own experiences. I aspire to facilitate conversations through image-making to expand the notion of beauty through the female gaze. My varied approaches in expression result from experimentation with different techniques, mediums and inspirations. I focus mainly on the figure either through the abstraction of bodies or by representational painting. I believe in the power of stories and art to heal and inspire.

Artist Bio

Katrina Kuras was born in 1990 in Canada. The multiplicity of Katrina’s careers in the beauty industry and art has given her unique experiences and knowledge of people and perspectives. Starting out her creative journey as a hairstylist, her career ended early and abruptly with spinal surgery. Not to be prevented in her pursuit of celebrating individual beauty, she turned her talents and passions to drawing, painting and photography. With a focus on figurative art, Katrina is in her 4th year of a Bachelor of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting at OCADU in Toronto. Katrina’s hard work and dedication awarded her the Women’s Art Association of Canada, Carolyn Ruth Freedman Scholarship in 2019, as well as the Women’s Art Association of Canada, Sandra Henderson Scholarship in 2023. Her work was exhibited at the Women’s Art Association of Canada at the Dignam Gallery during the Scholarship Recipient Group Show in August 2020.
