Cathy King originally trained as a Montessori teacher followed by a degree in Art. This led King to return to her original interest of drawing and printing, she has been a member of the Double Elephant Print Workshop since 2009. King's chosen print methods are linocuts, collagraphs and monoprints, she favours each of them for their individual qualities. For instance, monoprinting has a spontaneous nature whereas linocuts allow strong lines and bold shapes to shine and produce simple yet striking results. King's main source of inspiration comes from her surroundings, the natural and urban landscapes of Devon.
