Katarzyna’s paintings meld graphic, patterning of forms with loose strokes of paint. They recall her Polish heritage and the folk art tradition and display her confident and bold use of colour.
Subjects encompass landscapes peppered with buildings, plants and foliage and most recently ships and boats in harbours and on table tops. These ships in bottle shaped harbours or stranded on a table evolved during Lockdown as a metaphor for being stuck and unable to move around freely. They have developed into a motif, released from containment they often still sit beside a window onto the world outside.
Katarzyna studied at St. Martin's School of Art in London and received a travel bursary to study Fine Art at the Warsaw Academy of Arts in Poland. She has worked as a designer and illustrator and set up the Art House trail in Leicester.
