Having studied Illustration at Harrow College of Art, Katharine had been taking on commissions during her final term at university, enabling her to hit the ground running from the day she left.
In the years since, Katharine has never stopped working but also managed to acquire a BA Hons and an MA in Fine Art to add to her CV.
Katharine has a spontaneous and playful approach to a brief. She’ll use whatever media is best suited to the job at hand and loves to explore the magic of working in the moment.
Much of Katharine’s work relies on water based pigments and she often deploys a striking, graphical use of contrast in her compositions. Two of her favourite influences are Rene Gruau and Kathe Kollwitz, so it’s no surprise that fashion and portraiture make up two of the strongest streams within her portfolio.
