Katherine is an artist based in Ardnamurchan. Working ‘en plein air’ provides the inspiration for and is the very essence of her creativity. Her approach is rooted in developing a deeper sense of and a deeper connection to the landscape. Her intention is to capture with immediacy the ever changing elements, dramatic geological features and the historical scars by immersion in the environment in which she works. Through her art she is attempting to interpret these relationships and elements that combine to become part of the subjects’ beauty and story. She uses the changing seasons in the wild spaces of Lochaber and other similar locations as inspiration for her lightening quick sketches and colour studies produced on location. These are often developed further using alternative techniques in her studio. Working with a broad range of materials and a variety of different surfaces, Katherine’s techniques vary depending on the subject. Katherine works from her studio here at Resipole Studios.
