‘Princess Alice Hospice ’
I will donate 10% of all sales to thIS MARVELLOUS HOSPICE MOVEMENT
A year ago exactly, my mother passed from this world into the next. Princess Alice Hospice was there for us all the way. They were angels. I thought it would be a good memory to say another thank you to them. The work they do is priceless and second to none.
Kitty Wass is a London based artist. Her early career as a textile designer was spent designing for the British, Italian and American dress and furnishing markets. Subsequently she taught fine art textiles and photography before turning full time to painting.
‘I have a sense of fun, play, joy, sadness, seriousness. Paintings are a reflection of these layers of feeling, some there to layer over them. You can't pretend when you are painting’.
Kitty also makes silver jewellery, which sold for some years at the shop in Somerset House, The Strand.
In 2019 she had a painting chosen for auction at the Turner Contemporary Gallery, Margate.
Her paintings are small jewel-like canvases with series such as ‘Mythology’, ‘Cold’, ‘Gardens’.
Travels to Rajasthan, Italy and the Swiss Alps initiate her themes and her own garden is a constant though changing resource. The surface of her canvases is this also a key to the initial idea. This texture and colour connects to her jewellery and her beginnings as a textile designer.
