I have been making art as long as I can remember. The art room in my high school in the UK, was a place of wonder, solace and hard work. A place where life changing discussions and affirmations took place. It was the best place to be a teenager.
An Art foundation course followed and then a BA in Art, Design and Film from the University of Northumbria. My early working career was based in retail staging, interior design and Interior styling, then I made a 180 degree turn and worked for the NHS (National health Service) supporting patients with an acquired head trauma and their families in their homes as they adjust to life back at home.
In 2010 my husband and three children and I moved to LA. As the move was supposed to be temporary I took the opportunity to return to my first love, art, and I started a Pet Portrait business, which I still run – www.kathrynpittpetportraits.
