Weaving, Painting, Mixed Media
About the Artist
Katherine originally trained as a woven textile designer and now works both as a weaver and artist. Her paintings and new colourful fine silk and cashmere scarves are inspired by the surrounding local landscapes, and are filled with colour, light and texture.
Katherine studied woven textile design at The Royal College of Art in London and since then her varied creative career has included working freelance for fashion designers, and also as a fine artist. Whether painting or weaving her work is filled with colour, light and texture, and is inspired by the local landscapes around her home in rural Stirlingshire, including the outlook of hills from her own garden.
Combining skills learnt in both practices, she has been developing a collection of fine silk and cashmere scarves with the help of a grant from Creative Scotland, for small scale production at a mill in The Scottish Borders. Some of these will be on display alongside her artwork and demonstrations of her computerised handloom.
