Kathryn is a visual artist and uses a range of media, including paint, drawings, collages. Rooted in observation and figurative representation, her work suggests landscapes and scenes which have an ambiguous narrative and don't quite make sense. Inspired by images found in old books, postcards, packaging, illustration , she 'quotes' from these second-hand sources to create new stories and hopefully trigger familiar associations with the viewer. Her work combines both painterly and graphic, precise and gestural qualities. Kathryn also paints and draws portraits in a variety of media. Her portraits of children capture them and their world at a specific time, and can include children's own drawings and mark-making in a portrait which references their favourite toys, familiar clothes and storybooks in a semi-abstract design. Kathryn can do portrait commissions on request.
