Bio of the Artist
Kathryn sets up a celestial exhibition at Blackburn's Museum & Art Gallery
Designs have been born from my studies of time and space, love of ancient culture, and fascination of fate and destiny. The desire to learn more has meant the continued development of both myself and my craft, more often than not without formal instruction, but instead, built by illuminations from the subconscious.
Inquiring by nature, the desire of wanting to 'know' has led me to go down many paths. Psychiatry & the study of the human condition was one of these & I trained to become a psychiatric nurse, my path for the next for 15 years.
After that followed some wilderness years until I decided to follow my heart, and obtained a degree in fine art, something I always wanted to do but thought was out of my reach.
I had always been interested in tarot, astrology, and madly curious that there could be an existence outside of reality as we know it, as I have had many experiences to confirm this. I have always thought about things and daydreamed, wandering very far in my mind whilst physically staying still. I later discovered I have parahypnagogia in my day to day life which has brought me problems but enlightenments as well. Most practically of all, I saw images of designs in my mind and solutions to design dilemmas, as in how to make what I saw.
Now, with re-directed purpose, my interest is in the map of one's life & the manifestation of it - fate, destiny, the study of time & our place in the ebb & flow of the cosmos.
Life feels much better when we swim with the tide rather than against it.
