|Kathrin’s work reflects her diverse cultural background, having lived in many European countries and finally settled in Australia in 2000. |
Growing up in Communist East Germany Kathrin started taking life drawing classes at the age of 14 years. Her work is strongly influenced by social realism and communist propaganda art.
Kathrin spent a decade in Scandinavia visiting galleries in Denmark and Sweden as well as a year in Belgium where her work gained its Art Nouveau elements. She has since travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and America.
Practising as a full-time artist for the past 9 years, Kathrin has also been actively involved with Portrait Artists Australia, an industry association for professional portrait artists.
Kathrin has been a finalist in numerous art prizes, notably, the Portia Geach Award, the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Prize, the Mosman Art Prize, the Western Australian Black Swan Prize, just recently, a finalist in the 2012 Sulman Prize.
