Kitty attained a BA Honours in Printed Textiles and Fashion at Loughborough College of Art and Design. She worked as a freelance designer for the British, Italian and American market. Subsequently she taught fine art textiles and photography.
Kitty initially made silver jewellery but having been featured in the BBC’ s 'What Not to Wear' where she was told she should be wearing bright sparkling jewellery, she began to include semi-precious stones in her work to make necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Her jewellery sold at the Gilbert Collection Shop, Somerset House, Strand.
Kitty was a member for twenty years, and the chairman for eight years, of the professional group, Teddington Artists .
She recently exhibited for a second time at The Fountain Gallery. Each year a highlight is Purbeck Art Weeks (PAW) in May/ June.
As well as her love of Purbeck and its coastline, Kitty paints series of small jewel-like canvases inspired by travels to Rajasthan, Italy and the Swiss Alps, and her own garden is a constant though changing resource.
