Katrina's mixed media pieces include sculptures and wall hangings made from plastics, fishing net, and other debris washed up on Cornish beaches. Also a series of wall hangings made from acorn pods and sea glass. She also works in acrylics, oils and watercolour.
Katrina has lived in St Ives for the past 19 years. Like many she was drawn to the area for its unique light and sense of space. Like her life, her work is eclectic; she is inspired both by her environment and her experience. Having originally trained as a photo-journalist, much of her work is photographic whilst her experience of working in the music industry resulted in the incorporation of lyrics and music into her showcases.
Her recent work utilises a range of mediums but all are inspired by the natural environment, a world that we neglect, sometimes without even having noticed its presence. Her observations have a provocative edge of realism blended with cynicism. Katrina’s most recent compositions are made of the debris found on St Ives beaches, ironically using man-made materials to imitate the powerful forces of nature. Katrina's work has appeared on BBC Springwatch, BBC Spotlight, and has been displayed in the Natural History Museum, London and in Los Angeles USA. Her smaller scale sculptures appear in several galleries and are displayed at Coast.
