Sorry, no Works were found in the Kathryn Furniss collection.
Was born in England but came to Nelson as a young child.
Growing up with an artistic father she was encouraged to try different forms of craft before settling into painting after the birth of her second son nine years ago.
Kathryn works mainly in acrylic with layers of colour and texture incorporating a range of medium including copper steel & flax. Inspired by Pacific lifestyle , landscape and objects her latest work has seen her exploring the human figure as a vessell with heavily textured relief.
