I enjoy the challenge, process and relaxation of creating all types of art. I have taught mosaics, painted and sculpted. The last 2 years I have been making candles and beach orientated pieces to sell through my business – CandleLIKE. I attend pottery classes, which is one of my latest passions.
I particularly love working with children, they have no inhibitions about what’s expected of them and most times feel free to be creative with no boundaries. I have been involved in numerous school and classroom projects over the past 15 yrs.
The ‘CREATIVE RECYCLE CENTRE’ has produced a very exciting wave of recycled art for me.. My love for creativity and working with children have been ignited being part of such a dynamic team.
Using art as a means of self-expression, Katrina said, "I have never been good with words." With a strong desire to make pictures convey her story, Katrina allows her art to gain a greater understanding of herself and her world, providing the chance to explore the particles of life, often in an abstract form. “I love to explore the unknown, to look for the details within the shadows, find stories that are not always obvious and capture the sparkle in the common.” Always encouraged by new works and new stories, Katrina has developed a passion for public art and community arts projects. "ART is a powerful healing tool everyone should try."
