Katharine grew up in Oxfordshire and studied art at the University of Edinburgh and spent a year at the Universite de la Sorbonne in Paris. She now lives and works from her studio at home in Southfields. Katharine has painted her whole life but upon leaving university started work in advertising. Whilst being great fun, after a decade in advertising she found herself becoming increasingly claustrophobic in an office, yearning to be outside battling the elements with a paintbrush. The past 7 years have been dedicated to just that.
