Katie was born on the Isle of Man, UK, from a Cypriot father and English mother, her parents moved to Cyprus when she was six months old. She has painted from a very early age. Her formal education in fine art was at York School of Art and the State Academy of Fine Art in Rome.

 

Katie's work in oils, watercolours and mosaic is an ongoing expression of her love for nature, especially Cyprus; her light, land and sea; her sky, flora and fauna. A sinuous line of colours wanders through an image, showing the connection between all living things, starting from the earth and flowing up to the stars. Each place, islands in particular, have souls: Cyprus is soft, feminine, ancient - revealing herself in the midst of concrete and chaos.

 

Her mosaics are composed of stained glass, broken china and natural stone, fairly informal shapes which give a feeling of painting. She worked as a stained glass designer and maker for 12 years and also teaches weekly mosaics classes from her studio, which is in a beautiful restored old house where her art and handmade cards are on display and for sale. For more info please visit her website.
