Canadian award-winning artist Loretta Kaltenhauser combines the aesthetic feel of ancient and modern using a bold mix of styles, ranging from weathered and organic to sleek and contemporary.
Loretta expresses her visions in a spontaneous and direct fashion. Using brushes and palette knives, Loretta creates works that are either abstract or have landscape elements to them. Colors and shapes take on an energy of their own and each layer of texture and color she adds reinterprets her thoughts and emotions.
As a self-taught artist, Kaltenhauser is fearless and approaches her work with respect but without ceremony. Her vision seems unclouded, uncluttered. Perhaps it's her open attitude that allows her a certain freedom. She smiles and notes “...by not knowing the rules, I am breaking them all the time.”
