Although born in Liverpool, Kathleen spent her childhood in Buckinghamshire where the beech woods and far reaching views across the Chiltern Hills must have subconsciously implanted her love of trees. She trained at High Wycombe College of Art and graduated with NDD Hons. in painting.
She worked as a freelance designer and art teacher while her son was growing up. She then returned to run a graphics design studio, during which time she was also an examiner for the City and Guilds London.
She started painting full time in 1968 exhibiting mainly in London. In 1976 she began etching, working with the Reich British Art in Germany and CCA Galleries, London. Since then her work has been widely exhibited and collected in this country as well as in Germany, USA, Canada, the Far East and Australia. She has worked on commissions for the National Trust and the Woodland Trust.
Kathleen's vision of landscape is the subject matter of her work expressing feelings of space, peace and tranquillity through her use of muted colours. We have displayed her work now for many years and she remains one of our most popular artists.
