 Kathryn was born in Sydney and obtained her degree in visual arts from the City Art Institute. 

She was married and went to live near London in Buckinghamshire England. Whilst having a young family she took the opportunity to return to art school and obtain the ‘Higher Bucks Diploma in Painting’ from the Amersham and Wycombe College. Kathryn loved being able to study art again and practiced portraiture using her two little daughters as her models. She documented their childhood extensively in her paintings and continues to use them as models now they have grown into adults, exploring their very different personalities with a feeling of timeless romanticism.

In 2001 she returned to live in Sydney and trained at the Julian Ashton Art School, where she was awarded the Thea Proctor Scholarship in 2012. In 2015 she joined the Royal Art School and has been a student of portraiture with both Yve Close and Pamela Irving. She had a solo exhibition at the Eva Bruer Gallery in Paddington in 2012 and has subsequently been involved in many group exhibitions and has been selected for the Hunters Hill and Lane Cove exhibitions.

She was delighted to be  accepted as an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society in 2017. She is a portrait, figurative and still life painter.
