Kathryn Green graduated in 2007, with a First Class Honours degree in Fashion and Textiles. Since then she has been working as a freelance textile designer and lecturer in Further Education. Her life and work experiences are diverse, each one contributing to her development and personal understanding, which she draws on for her textiles, as she states, “I am my experiences.”
Inspiration is found from a myriad of cultural experiences. Widely traveled and having lived in Chile, Spain and New Zealand, a variety of cultures have influenced her choices of colour, shape and texture. Her recent travels in Patagonia have inspired a richer, brighter colour palette, more textural surfaces and a sense of space in her work.
Time working in textile conservation and Persian carpet restoration has contributed to Kathryn’s love of pattern and shape and the vibrant, often eccentric, colour combinations found within these carpets.
