About the Artist
Oil paintings of local landscapes, pen a watercolour sketches including garden flowers, and weaving.
Katherine studied textile design at the Royal College of Art in London, and worked for 15 years as a freelance woven textile designer. Now living in rural Stirlingshire she is mostly inspired by the local landscape, it’s changing weather and seasons. Her artwork is full of natural colours, light and texture, but painting allows a more direct response to her surroundings than weaving. Whether using oil paint or watercolours, she aims to capture a sense of place and often a journey along a path, but she is more interested in the mood or an impression of ‘being there’ than detail. She sells work both locally and internationally, and enjoys teaching both painting and weaving. She has moved house this year and is setting up a new studio. Her recent artwork and weaving will be on display with Sheila Patrick’s willow baskets in the Garden Room at the back of her new garden. Weather permitting, they will give demonstrations, while enjoying the lovely views of the Fintry Hills.
