Katherine has been painting and drawing since she was young and has always taken great comfort in the practice of making things with her hands. Her inspiration comes from being in and around nature and creating space to reflect and find joy. Many of her themes come from growing up in a small country town, on the Northern California Coast, and include the surrounding natural landscapes, changes of the seasons and creatures of the farm and forest.
She studied art and design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and Impressionist painting at the Marchutz School of art in Aix-en-Provence, France.
In 2017, she formed Ingrid Press, a stationery and illustrated gift company, which sells from stockists nationwide.
