Katka Hubacek is a Czech visual artist born in Switzerland, raised in Quebec and now based in Hamilton, Ontario. In her art practice she works in sculpture, mixed media, and primarily painting in oil and acrylic.

Despite her strong sense of self at a young age, as a first generation immigrant Katka felt isolated in small-town Quebec. After years of artistic exploration the turning point in her art journey was becoming a mother. Vulnerably delving into the emotional dichotomy that arise from the clash of stereotypes: Mother as selfless giver and Artist as self-centred creator she found her voice. Her goal is to have the female perspective be part of the social narrative and give women and sensitive souls a feeling of being seen.

Katka Hubacek has taken a long and winding road back to herself and to her art identity. Studying Set and Costume Design (National Theatre School of Canada) she reconnected to her Czech and Jewish heritage. She has a Costume Studies Diploma from Dalhousie University in Halifax. After 10 years of design work in theatre and film she followed her desire for more self-motivated and creative work by participating in art shows (One of a Kind, Cabbagetown Arts & Crafts etc). Once her kids where at school she finally followed her dream and got her Bachelor in Fine Arts (Concordia University). It only took 25 years to find her purpose now she’s ready to find her community.
