Kateryna Kryvolap is an artist, originally from Ukraine, who makes her home in Steinbach, Canada. She was raised and educated in an artistic family where she found her passion for fine art that was passed from generation to generation. Kateryna creates fine art of various styles but most commonly uses Petrykivka fine art technique. Since her inspiration comes from the ancient Ukrainian decorative folk art it is worth mentioning that Petrykivka was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Petrykivka technique is fundamentally unique due to extensive use of fine tip handcrafted brushes made of cat fur.

Since the time Kateryna moved to Canada, her love of Ukraine is being transformed into original artwork. Her paintings are composed of numerous fine elements which reflect a spirit of Ukrainian soul. Birds, flowers and guelder-roses represent happiness, health and wealth. Artist’s positive mood and powerful energy are transferred through her artwork to many customers and collectors from different countries and continents.

Her paintings over the past two years have been sold to collectors and art lovers in different parts of the world (Canada, USA, France, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Germany, Ukraine)

Kateryna Kryvolap is a common participant of international exhibitions throughout Europe and North America.
