United Kingdom 1937
Kathleen was born in Liverpool in 1937 but grew up in the countryside.
She was trained at High Wycombe College of Art and graduated with an Honours degree in Painting.
She worked as a freelance designer until her son went to school and then taught art for some years. She then returned to graphics and ran a busy design studio. During this time she was also an examiner for City and Guild Courses.
She started to paint on a full time basis in 1968, exhibiting mainly in London. In 1976 she began to etch, working with Reich British Art in Germany and CCA Galleries. Her natural style of concise line and delicate hand colouring greatly lend themselves to etching, her chosen medium and haw rightly won her an international following. Since then her work has been exhibited and collected widely in the U.K., Germany, USA, Canada and Austrailia.
Kathleen draws inspiration for her work from the West Country hills and farmland, which surround her home. She has also made frequent trips to the Lake District, London and Venice.
Her subject matter of trees and their muted colours haqs remained consistent. Bleached grasses, weathered posts and buildings, cow parsley and glimpses of distant hills all express the feeling of space, peace and tranquillity - an artist's vision of the landscape
