After studying at Mount Allison University and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Kath Kornelsen Rutherford set up an intaglio printshop in Musquodoboit Harbour in the early 1980's. From there she developed her distinctive mezzotint engravings. They are characterized by both the rich soft dark tones of the traditional mezzotint art form and an impish approach to everyday life in her subject matter. She has exhibited throughout North America, Europe and Japan. Kath is an award-winning artist; her works are in many corporate and public collections.
