Katrina has been a practicing artist and teacher since 1983. She has taught secondary art for 10 years and private art classes for primary school children for 15 years.
Katrina is also a certified teacher in “The Color of Woman” method of painting. Color of Woman is a step by step painting method based on intentional and intuitive practices. This school was developed by American artist and teacher Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Katrina studied with Shiloh Sophia in 2013.
As an Art Practitioner, Katrina has won several art awards including the Churchie Emerging Artist Sculpture Award and has work represented in Art Collections such as the Queensland Art Gallery, The Gold Coast Centre Art Gallery and the QUT Art Museum. In 2010 her work was represented in the Blake Directors Cut Exhibition in Sydney.
As an Artist /Teacher Katrina believes that it is important to “practice what she preaches.’’
“By delving into my own creativity and expressing this through image, story and heart, I can intimately share this experience with my students and contribute to the process of their own creative development, intuitive exploration and ultimately their own heart and soul journey.”
