Presented in a beautiful deluxe black frame, this original wren painting is perfect for bringing the quiet joy of these inconspicuous birds to any home. Despite being one of the UK and Ireland’s smallest birds, the wren has the loudest voice of any of them, and that boldness is captured in Kathryn’s unique, dramatic poured style.

This original painting by Kathryn is perfect for an individual who loves the garden or the wilds, and all of the creatures that call it home. Inspired by these uniquely tiny birds, Sunrise evokes the magic of the dawn chorus in an array of warm golden shades, beautifully complemented by cool blue tones. Genuine gold and silver leaf shimmer throughout this wren’s plumage, like rays of light bouncing off his fluttering wings.

What makes an original wren painting by Kathryn unique?

Kathryn uses a unique pouring technique to create her paintings, which is a contact-free approach to making her artwork.  Black ink is mixed with gel to create a new material which offers a new and unusual finish.  The mix is poured from mid-air from an open neck bottle – much like pouring honey onto toast or olive oil onto bread.  The finish is a textured, glossy image set against a smooth white board.

With no sketch underneath the painting, this freeform technique allows Kathryn to create truly original, organic pieces that are full of life and energy.  The result is captivating and often evocative of how we feel about the subject in our minds.  It is this ‘feeling’ that Kathryn strives to achieve through her work that gives it such resonance with collectors far and wide.
