A graphic designer residing on the surf coast of Victoria, the sea and the bush surrounding was beckoning . Kathryns recent landscape paintings are not simply an impression of places in-situ — are also drawn from imagination and lived experience of the place.

“Influenced by the cubist movement and the way they reduce their subjects to geometric forms. My colour palettes are arrived by saturating hints of colours found in nature. By combining these two approaches in tandem with a strong graphic qualities and use of pattern, my works straddles abstraction and representational approaches to painting.”

Kathryn has in the past few years has had several successful shows and has sold to local and international collectors. Commissions and show work has allowed her to break free of the confines of the computer and graphic work to concentrate on painting in her studio overlooking the spring valley west of Torquay.
