A south east London based printmaker and visual artist, who’s practice is deeply informed by the joyful clash of diversity, shapes and people and places in her surroundings.
Over the past few years, Katrina has seen her playful, bold work emerge onto both the streets and galleries of her native Peckham and across London. Her work has flourished further afield too, with public and private commissions in her dynamic prints, murals, installations & sculpture. Having graduated with a degree in Behavioural Sciences and with a successful career in social housing under her belt, Katrina took a break to bring up her three children.
Katrina then came to a career in the visual arts following an adult learning course in printmaking in 2014. Self taught, her work continues to evolve; inspired by the history, architecture, colour and cultures of her surroundings - bold and seemingly simple shapes are used to create images and moving sculpture that draw viewers into their own journey of discovery. She is passionate about community initiatives and public accessibility to the arts.
Katrina is making her initial step to recovery from a traumatic brain injury sustained earlier this year. The injury has left her facing new challenges that she is having to learn to adapt to, however is determined to get back to being creative and move towards design.
