Katherine trained at Edinburgh College of Art, gaining a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting in 1989. During her time at Edinburgh she was tutored by many of the great names within Scottish Contemporary Art including William Bailey, David Michie, John Houston and George Donald. The training was centred on the traditional craft of drawing and strong use of colour which is so evident within Katherine’s work and she feels very privileged to have benefited from such a formal training. Katherine lives on Salisbury Plain and enjoys the vast areas of uninhibited landscape, the shifting light and impressive skies which she finds a constant source of inspiration. Much in demand now after eight successful Solo shows, she can regularly be found at all the major Art Fairs and exhibits landscapes from as far afield as Isle of Harris and Palestine. Her focused and detailed still-lives are also much sought after, after winning her the coveted William and Mary Armour prize from the Paisley Art Institute in 2007. Katherine also has an MA in The History of Britain and the First World War, and has recently written a book, 'Cornerstones: The Life of H.M. Farmar, from Omdurman to the Western Front', published by Helion.
