From her home studio in Harrogate, Katherine creates art inspired by the local Yorkshire landscape. Using rich water mixable oil paints Katherine likes to depict subjects which resonate and make a connection between herself as the artist and with the viewer; helping to immortalise their exceptional and everyday memories on canvas and thereby create a sense of belonging.
Katherine graduated in 2003 with a degree in History of Art from York University and it was whilst studying a Fine Art module that her childhood passion for painting was reignited. Following a career in interior design and, after having a family, Katherine decided to pursue her artistic vocation with intent and practise art full time.
Katherine says “I hope to communicate feelings of light and positivity through my paintings, often with a big sky playing the leading role. This is when I am at my happiest; pushing buttery oil paints around on the smooth canvas. Finding courage, peace and joy in equal measure!”
