Kathryn graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 1998 with joint honours in sculpture and ceramics. During this time she developed a unique method of working that unified both these disciplines; using red earthenware clay as a growing medium for grass, to create living sculptures.
She has worked extensively with environmental art projects in a variety of locations over the past 9 years. These include The Economist Plaza, Piccadilly: Gainsborough's House, Suffolk and Waterlow Park, Highgate. Kathryn has collaborated with schools and organisations such as Artscope, Groundwork and The National Trust creating living sculptures and running art-based environmental education workshops with children and adults with learning difficulties.
Her work has been continually informed by training and practicing as a Montessori teacher over the past 6 years, deepened and enriched by a year’s study at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, London. In addition, she has recently worked and studied at the world-renowned centre for ecological studies and sustainability, the Schumacher College, Devon.
She has welcomed the opportunity to work on such a large scale sculpture project for her local community, particularly one that embraces the practice of sustainability.
