Kitty Wass BA Honours
Printed Textiles and Fashion
Always with the ambition of being a painter, Kitty began her career as a textile designer for the British, Italian and American market. Subsequently she taught fine art textiles and photography.
Kitty also makes silver jewellery, and having been featured in the BBC’ s 'What Not to Wear' where she was told she should be wearing bright sparkling jewellery, she included semi-precious stones in her work to make necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Her jewellery sold at the shop in Somerset House, The Strand.
Kitty was a member and then the chairman of the professional group, Teddington Artists from 1990-2006.
She has exhibited at The Fountain Gallery and 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.
