Printmaking - Shortlisted 2013
In 2007 Katherine was awarded a three-year research fellowship in Printmaking by the City & Guilds of London Art School where alongside her teaching she was able to experiment with materials and techniques. In her current work she uses mainly traditional printmaking techniques with collagraph to add and subtract colour and create contrast until the piece is realised.
The house motif evident in her work is used to convey the tension between security and vulnerability, safety and overprotection, a central theme in her work. Her art has featured in exhibitions abroad and in the UK including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2012 where she exhibited Bubble High, a book made up of 30 mono-prints inspired from working alongside poet Retta Bowen during the Art on Poetry: season of artists books at the Royal Festival Hall. Katherine has exhibited in solo shows including an exhibition in Munsterland Germany recently and another at Printroom London in 2011.
