Meet the artist Katharine Rowe




Come and visit us this Saturday to meet the artist Katharine Rowe as part of our exhibition Floral Variation! 

Katharine grew up in Oxfordshire and studied art at the University of Edinburgh and spent a year at the Universite de la Sorbonne in Paris. She now lives and works from her studio at home in Southfields.  Katharine has painted her whole life but upon leaving university started work in advertising.  Whilst being great fun, after a decade in advertising she found herself becoming increasingly claustrophobic in an office, yearning to be outside battling the elements with a paintbrush. The past 7 years have been dedicated to just that.

Katharine describes her work as colourist. Obsessing about colour, she spends a long time mixing across three palettes before I start painting. For inspiration she looks to the colourists of the 20th century: Matisse, Derain, Peploe, Vlaminck, Hockney to name but a few. Living so close to all the fabulous exhibition spaces of London, she tries to see all the big exhibitions and write reviews of them on her blog page.
