about the work
For Kathryn, process and concept are wholly bound together. Her screen-printing works have the unique potential to produce bold shape with strong definition incorporating large areas of smooth and translucent colour on a flat plane. In the preparatory stages of her printwork she uses a combination of drawing, collage and photography together with digital design.
Kathryn’s Fine Art background training in Fine Art started with preparatory and foundation studies at Camberwell Art School, Chelsea Art School and Morley College in London, followed by Leeds College of Art. She gained a First in a Fine Art Degree (Leeds Met) before taking Postgraduate Studies in Site Specific & Socially Engaged Art Practice in Liverpool (John Moores).
Work in printmaking and running workshops is now a full-time occupation, but her career path has been a meandering one. Until recently Kathryn combined her art practice with work in Secondary Art Education, first as a departmental technician then as a teacher. In earlier life she worked as a corporate solicitor in a large international law practice (London and Paris). Her original degree studies during those formative years in French Language & Literature (UCL) remain key to her thinking and underpin all subsequent work.
