Katherine Jones’ artistic practice is underpinned by drawing and painting which translates to multi-layered painterly prints which bring together disparate narratives in hyper-real or folkloric spaces. Perceptions of safety and danger are often described using archetypal motifs such as a house, flower, sun or tree.
After a BA at Cambridge School of Art she completed her MA at Camberwell College of Art in 2003 and is currently a lecturer in Fine Art Printmaking at Middlesex University as well as a visiting lecturer at universities and colleges across the UK. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her work and has undertaken major residencies including Eton College, Winchester College, Rabley Drawing Centre UK and Kloster Bentlager in Germany. In 2022 she was elected as an RA (Royal Academician).
