Kathleen Scott

Kathleen Scott has a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts and Creative Writing. Her work has been recognized with a number of awards, including the installation of a 12 ft. ceramic art wall at the Vancouver Island University Campus in Nanaimo, BC, honouring the 14 women killed in the École Polytechnique Montreal Massacre in 1989. She has had one solo show and been a part of many art gallery group showings.

Since graduating in 2004, Kathleen has been a potter's assistant, a chocolate maker, a Gift Shop Gallery Coordinator, and the owner of her own ceramic arts studio, Mud Otter Pottery. Kathleen works in many mediums, including but not limited to; clay, painting, drawing, photography, stone, wood, and metal.

Dragon Weald Artworks is the name Kathleen has chosen to produce her latest creations under. Choosing the words, Dragon because she was born in the Year of the Dragon, and Weald, an old British word for a wooded or uncultivated country, to represent the inspiring wilderness environments her and her husband love to visit.

Working with natural stone, shell, ceramic, Czech glass and Swarovski crystal beads, Kathleen crochets one of a kind jewellery pieces using nickel and lead free silver plate and copper wires.

Kathleen's husband retired in 2012, and in 2015, they bought a small fixer upper in Van Anda, on Texada Island, BC. Once the house is done, Kathleen wants to build another small pottery studio, and return to her most loved medium, clay.
