Born in Brisbane, Australia and raised in the North East of Scotland, Kathryn went on to study at Edinburgh College of Art before settling in the city and working from her studio in Leith.
The paintings Kathryn creates are inspired by the lines, shapes and textures of organic forms, particularly flowers and plants. This subject matter allows her to experiment with a wide array of colours and materials in order to create her vibrant canvases. Kathryn tends to work in a quick, intuitive manner.
Dense layers of acrylic, wax pastels, pencil and gold leaf imbue her compositions with a sense of depth while simultaneously creating a richly textured surface. Her hope is that when people view her work they get a real sense of the joy that comes from this experimental process.
