Loretta Kaltenhauser


Loretta Kaltenhauser is an established, contemporary, award winning artist. She creates works that are either abstract or have landscape elements to them. She is originally from Belleville, Ontario, has lived most of her life in Toronto, and now resides in Cobourg, Ontario with her husband John, also a professional artist. Working at an unsatisfying office career for many years, Loretta felt the need to unleash her creativity, took that first step and resigned. She realized that the Universe, her inner guidance system, was sending her a message and she was so very glad she listened. Loretta has now been creating full time for the last eight years, and in that short time has established herself as an accomplished contemporary artist with collectors in Canada, the United States and the U.K. Using various brushes and palette knives, Loretta layers, subtracts and manipulates acrylic paint on canvas, to synthesize an intricate and distinct tableau. Colours and shapes take on an energy of their own and each subsequent layer of texture and colour she adds reinterprets her thoughts and emotions. Her goal is not to document subjects or to make statements, but to make an emotional connection with the viewer, allowing them to explore their own spirit and to inspire them as well.
