“It’s always great to hear that after trying some of these quick mark-making and drawing exercises, people are keen to repeat them at home regularly as a way to relax or reset. My approach encourages play, experimentation and trust in our gut intuition.”  

In her own practice Kitty takes inspiration from her daily walking practice around the creeks and woodland near her studio at Islington Boatyard in Penryn. Using acrylic, ink and enamel paint applied with various tools and mark-making techniques, she carves, scrapes and builds up richly layered surfaces that reflect patterns found in nature and the slow formation of structures over time.
