I started teaching Visual Arts in 2008 at NPGHS. I love being part of the development of our students' art careers. Our students are full of ideas, passion and energy for what they are creating and this helps inspire and reenergise my own practice.

In my own practice I enjoy painting landscapes, household objects and have a small obsession with flowers painting, planting and collecting others paintings of flowers. Recently I have begun printmaking, inspired by Lester Hall and my students work.



Katie lives in New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand
