Kathryn has been professionally trained in ceramics and glass at Chisholm Institute in the 1980s and spent three years working in two commercial studios in Boston USA.
In 2010, Kathryn received the Regional Arts Australia ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award for her volunteer efforts coordinating the AFTER mural in Kyneton, following the Black Saturday fires of 2009. The AFTER Black Saturday Memorial is an 11 metre mural featuring 280 tiles with inclusions of donated material from fire affected residents and the broader local, interstate and international communities. The project was supported by a $2,500 Arts Quick Response Recovery Fund grant from Arts Victoria and a $10,700 donation from the Helen McPherson-Smith trust.
Little sprigs of rosemary with words of wisdom from many sources will be placed in a basket along with mints and tissues, at the entrance to the chapel where the exhibition is being held........"here if you need me" on the sign.
