Katarzyna graduated after studying Graphic Design at St. Martin's School of Art in1987. She worked as a designer for various agencies before accepting a travel bursary to study Fine Art at the Warsaw Academy of Arts in Poland. Returning to London she worked as an illustrator, college lecturer and as freelance textile designer.
Having relocated to the Midlands she now concentrates on painting. Much of her work is influenced by her Polish heritage and has a naive, pattern based quality. An interest in typography is often reflected in her work, painting onto pages of old books and manuscripts and incorporating lettering.
