Katrina Slade’s My Wild Oneness 🌱

Katrina Slade, the first Fredericton Arts Alliance (FAA) residence artist for 2022 will be breaking out
of her normal limits by making her biggest work ever – Wild Oneness.

Katrina Slade Portrait

Wild Oneness will be a mixed media series inspired by Slade’s meditative involvements with nature.
She is trying to demonstrate that all living things are interconnected. It comes out of her
experience in residence at the Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts in St. Andrews, N.B.

Slade, who will be working on the series June 20-26, is drawn to organic shapes and patterns that
are visible in her work. She is inspired by nature when she creates art, and it often influences her
painting process.

The Fredericton-based artist holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in
Teaching. Now devoting herself full time to her art, she is ready to break down barriers and push
her own limits.

Slade plans a public demonstration of her plein air drawing technique near the lodge in Odell Park, weather permitting, Sunday, June 26, from 3-4 p.m.

“My technique involves laying the partially completed painting onto the ground underneath some
trees,” she said. “This captures the silhouettes of the foliage and the dappled light well, which I
then trace onto the piece.”

Materials will be available so visitors can experiment with the technique.
